It was a fabulous training, from its design to its delivery, it balanced between practical exercises and theoretical concepts. Indispensable for anyone who wants to efficiently communicate with people. I strongly recommend it.
The course was extremely useful and has supported my interviewing skills further with both witnesses and suspects. It has changed my mindset and showed that baseline is so important. The course is very impactive and I will be seeking further Paul Ekman skills.
I attended the first ETaC Certification. The training was powerful, very professional and the delivery was excellent. Nothing will be the same after this training.
The ETaC course is very professionally organized and brilliantly structured so as to ensure that the information was not only delivered well but also understood and assimilated by the participants.
