We searched high and low for a provider in Australia to train our employees in Occupational Vision Screening. The NextSense Institute in Sydney not only provided the training for our company, the content was delivered by world-class professionals at the top of their field. Thank you Sue and Trudy, the knowledge you imparted has allowed us to better cater for our clients needs.
