Jeg syns dette har vært et bra kurs og det har gitt meg faglig påfyll og motivasjon både privat og profesjonelt i mitt arbeid. Jeg er veldig fornøyd med oppgavene underveis. Jeg opplever at vekslingen mellom tekst, oppgaver og lydfiler har vært fin. Jeg var sertifisert helsecoach fra før, og dette har gitt meg enda mer tyngde og profesjonell kompetanse.

The online materials have been easy to read and to understand with easy, clear and accessible material along the way. The training have been well structured, both learning wise, but also in the practical way to learn simple and easily.
