Birley HIA Training: Evaluations and Testimonials
Course participants are encouraged to complete anonymous evaluation forms at the end of each module. Any issues arising can thus be addressed while training is still in process. Our health impact assessment courses benefit from this feedback and are thus continuously improved and refined – even while we are teaching it.
