What people say about the course: 

“I enjoyed the BNG course and found it very informative. The course was well structured and presented, and the discussions were a useful complement to the material. It was nice to get the perspective of people from various backgrounds, I think this highlighted some of the practical issues around BNG in the real world nicely.” DL
