I liked the Case Study most. It created a real audit environment and I learnt a lot from being a participant. The trainer was really up to speed with this.

The teacher was brilliant and very entertaining. I had a lot training courses and studies in the past and have to say these sessions were most memorable. He is such a versatile and pleasant personality and I had really valuable time in learning points from the sessions.
