  • Krisztian Niesz - Review: 8/10
    Very much liked that the trainings was focusing on practicing the RTE role and spending full time on the theories. I found it very long though.
  • Signe Pedersen - Review: 9/10
    There was not enough respect for the time boxes, which meant that we were very busy in the end to get through the curriculum.
