What do learners say about our courses?

"...it was a perfect solid basis for introducing technical issues in an accessible and more simplistic way."

"...it is the most fantastic system for reaching large numbers of people. The materials are great and as they are already reviewed before dissemination it makes for a good case for integrating them into our formal programmes and short courses."

"...the technical detail was very helpful to me, as I am sure it will be to lots of people."

"It's worth a look just to see if your own training materials on these topics cover the ground in such a practical way..."

"...have shared it with my colleagues within the Food Security Directorate. It is such a useful tool for capacity building."

"Keep preparing this type of material, it's great!"

"I have received the link from many sources, ... it is generating a lot of interest!"
