Reviews

Cathy is a great instructor. It was immediately evident that she was very familiar with the material being covered and she was able to answer all the questions that arose during the course of the webinar.

– International Credit Analyst

"Webinar is the way to go if you are not one that either does not have time or does not like to travel. You are able to communicate with your host thru chat and phone line. Able to hear others questions and answers. It had a personal touch. I came away from this much more knowledgable and secure. Letters of Credit are no longer intimidating. Thank you Global Training Center."
