The best part about this CBT training online course, is that you really need very little, in order to maximise your learning experience. Apart from an internet connection, a thirst for knowledge and a pen, are the tools you’ll need. We do include over 50 downloads, so if you want those it might be good to have access to a printer, but these are not essential to the success of the course.
