The workshop was very educative and an eye-opener. These are things that we usually just take for-granted.

I had an idea what the course would be like, but it was much more than what I had expected.

Metro Central Training: WCED (February, 2015)

I found all aspects of the course very effective.  I now have a very good understanding of how to teach all the concepts.  I am going to be more specific and detailed when I teach. I need to research and plan my basic concepts lessons ...
