I am very happy with the training you provide, it has been beneficial to me and has kept me confident in this very difficult period since March 2020.
Overall have found WiserAdviser incredibly useful and good quality, especially when the training offered is free.
Very useful, informative and digestible. It's really difficult (for me personally) to keep concentration levels up during online delivery but I didn't have that issue with wiser adviser, trainers are engaging.
