Course Outline



  • Though relatively short, the course is quite detailed. Lecturers, besides providing a lot of reading material and resources, explain the subject in detail. Considering I work in a totally different industry (retail), I found myself following the course quite easily.

I do not work within the field of Compliance so I chose Lead Training Services as I’ve heard good reviews about the company. The course was really informative and theoretical and I feel that I have learnt so much about the subject. Lecturers are well prepared and they provide you with all the necessary resources needed to keep on reading about the subject. I highly recommend Lead Training Services as lectures are delivered with enthusiasm and can help you broaden your knowledge about topic.
