Frequently Asked Questions

I chose Metadata training for a Foundation course in Business Analysis as I was impressed with their website, pricing and reviews. The course was first rate and the lecturer, Rod Simpson. Was excellent. When we introduced ourselves at the beginning of the course he remembered what we’d said and then tied examples back to our own particular circumstances throughout the course. This made things more relevant and enabled us to relate to the material better. He explained things thoroughly and clearly and was very approachable and willing to explain things multiple times. Would definitely recommend both him and Metadata to my colleagues and friends.
