"Received my diplomate nearly 10 years ago, and as an examiner, thought it would be beneficial to take the course. I would suggest that one would get more out of the course with experience. Well organized, professional and complete delivery. Recommended for all docs from those challenging the diplomate to the experienced diplomate"
