How do I know which training course is right for me?

You can also contact your industry association, which will be able to provide you information about training institutions with in-depth knowledge of your sector and institutions that offer training courses for your specific sector. Obviously, you can also carry out this search yourself. When you do so, look for training institutions that have expert instructors, clearly communicate the results achieved by their course participants, carry out customer-satisfaction surveys and have a complaints procedure.
