The format of the course was very convenient and allowed me to structure the course work around my work commitments.

The course was very thorough and gave a useful update on some of the technical aspects of pedestrian, cycle and horse riding facilities. It refreshed my knowledge and gave useful insight into the WCHAR process, as a RSA practitioner, designer and now a WCHAR practitioner.
