<p>First day needs a bit more practice by training.</p> <p>mihgt be a good idee to instruct and ASK the  students to evaluate the trainers!</p>

Dr. André V.

<p>Probably on the first day, there could have been more attention to the lab training and the ways a trainer should act on the pupil.</p> <p> </p> <p>the trainingsform might have been more explained so that it could be more readily used. </p> <p> </p> <p>Great hospitaliy, perfect training facility, and nice and well educated staff!</p>
