Unfortunately, I do not recommend this class. The teaching style was very poor with a completely disorganised content. Nothing was explained properly and the ensuing questions could not be answered. The presentation was rambling and vague, and not value for money at all; what was covered could have been more concise and taken less time to present. Other attendees felt the same. I raised my concerns with CERES both in person and with a follow up e-mail and received no response to the e-mail. There are better classes on this topic out there.
