R02 presentation


“I have passed R02 through using your excellent training material, after failing previously with the CII material. Thanks, your material was truly invaluable.” Claire Potter, HSBC

"The audiovisual presentations in the R02 online multimedia course are a big help and assist learning and make a change from just reading the book. The examples of calculations are also a great help as the CII book is not always clear in its approach."
Andrew Moore, ADM Consultants Ltd
