Computer Work

"There was a lot of helpful information provided in this training and will be a great resource for new hires."

"I believe this to be a very handy tool, I have done multiple VI-SPDAT but I felt this gave a little more clarity of some of the questions and how to administer. The first time I used this form I was a little confused and I believe with this course first it would have be very helpful. Even after doing the VI-SPDAT for awhile now I still see this training as valuable."

"This course is super helpful and would be great for new staff to better understand the process of administering the assessment."
