Excellent course, very well delivered and very informative. I would love to see it expanded even to a 5 or 6 week course to go a bit more in depth on some of the topics.

por WFJan 2nd 2018

Excellent course. I learnt much during the programme. It was not very informative and provided a good introduction to indoor air quality
