What Our Learners Say

We’ve been working with Web Shield as a training provider for some years and think that these online courses are a super addition to their curriculum. They are especially helpful for new joiners, refresher training and staff working in smaller offices, where we’d ordinarily have to fly them out to attend a training course. Stanley Skoglund Head of Risk & Compliance, Worldline Global

Great way to deliver this course content. Even for an old hand, who knew that learning as an adult in the multi-media age with animations, videos, online quizzes and so forth could be fun as well as professionally beneficial? Kevin Smith Director, Riskskill

It is very good. It is great for beginners and it explains different topics quite well. I also like that each chapter/section is not very long so you can totally manage the speed you want to go through it and easily find any topic you want to listen to again. Dagmar Bjornsdottir Senior Payments Consultant, Minerva
