The SMSTS course was brilliantly delivered by Brian, considering COVID environment, it couldn't be held in a physical classroom so the course was delivered via Zoom. This was surprisingly engaging and informative. Brian is highly professional, calm and knowledgeable, it was really good to be part of this diverse group.
