Among other things, our participants have said the following about our courses:

  • For those of us who don’t have much experience with Cobra, this was very important and educational. Got a good understanding of the idea and how to use Cobra.
  • Gained great confidence in the method as we went through real cases, both the ones that went well and those that can be developed. In other words – use the tool correctly and at the right time and you get a good result.
  • Useful to see where things went well and badly. Good that even misuse is highlighted.
  • You got a feeling for how it works … and how to rethink with the Cobra system.
