Excellent course, Yen's is a proper old school geek (no offence) who won me over with his enthusiasm for the subject.

The course was well paced and enthusiastically delivered, although the stability of the software platform was an issue at times - not the fault of the trainer, but it slowed aspects of the course.
It might be helpful in future for the commissioning organisation to supply proxy/anonymised data relevant to the role of the course participants to strengthen more directly the link between the learning and its application.
Team work was limited although only three of us. But I would have liked us to work a little more as a team doing team activities instead of individual work all the time, this would enable to discuss topic and reports and ideas
