Ondanks grote hoeveelheid info goe dte volgen (, )
     
waarschijlijk is er lang stilgestaan bij functionaliteiten die binnen ing niet worden gebruikt. Dit in verhouding 70/30 (30% wordt niet/nooit gebruikt). Misschien de volgende keer even vragen. (, )
     
heel leerzaam. Heel bruikbaar; Verhouding met dagelijkse praktijk zou een waardevolle toevoeging zijn. (standaarden) (, )
     
Goede cursus. Laat veel mogelijkheden van OPC zien (, )
     
Prima cursus. Soms wat veel theorie, maar de opdrachten maken veel goed. (, )
     
Complexer dan ik had verwacht. Ik heb geen ervaring met TWS. Toch denk ik er snel mee aan te slag te kunnen.$ (, )
     
zze leerzaam. Goede uitleg van de cursusleiders. (, )
     
Prettige omgeving en veel kennis opgedaan - dank (, )
