“I’ve attended other eLearning sessions however this was my first SDS eLearning. Since starting the SDS eLearning courses I have found them to exceed expectations providing valuable support to their clients. SDS have gone above and beyond with their service and support and the support team are always really friendly and helpful.” 

“My knowledge of ProVal and Sequel in how to set up and use the systems increased substantially from 0 to 80% during the sessions. The support of the trainer contributed to this as Kat was fabulous at keeping energy and interaction levels up throughout all the training sessions. The thing I liked most about these sessions was that we were able to undertake them from the comfort of our own homes.  After attending these sessions I’d be highly inclined to recommend these training courses to a friend or colleague and will look to attend more sessions in the future. Overall I thought it was excellent.”
