The training was well presented. The categories were separated which was very helpful for studying. The advantage to the training is that you could work at your own pace and when you are ready to take the test, just notify the supervisor in charge.

Good test to know how I ranked among other candidates. The test took less than a day to complete and I was aware of the results that same day. The hours were convenient
