Feedback from participants:

“I am new to managing WWC Checks and found the session just perfect! The presentation was down to earth and easy to understand. I also had all of my tricky questions answered!”

“I was confident that I knew everything about WWC Checks before I attended the workshop, but left the session realising what I did not know and with a good understanding of upcoming changes."
