Here is some feedback from others on this course's trainer:



"A great professional with a polite and friendly approach to the participants. I really appreciated the way she explained each topic with examples from her own career."
Gunn Aarli



"Irene Koukia is a very approachable person from what I could see and hear, and she shared her valuable ideas and resources with us. I like the way she went into details such as how to present oneself, or where to find a free CAT tool, giving all sorts of links. I would like to thank her for opening my eyes as there are lots of things I didn't realize I could do on my own, such as getting a specialisation free of charge! I can't wait for the release of the recording of the course to go through all the info and get my profile sorted out properly. Thank you, Irene!"

Hi Ruth22,

Thank you for your interest in the session. For the time being, there are 8 seats at 25 USD available. After 8 purchases the price will increase to $29.00. Those who purchase a seat in advance may be able to pay an "early bird" or cheaper price, while those who confirm participation later or last minute, may likely have to pay a higher fee. In some training sessions a price increase based on the number of registrants may also apply, i.e. the first 15 registered pay one price, the next 10 pay a a slightly higher price etc.

Early payment is advised in order to secure participation and help reach the course minimum participation - unfortunately, courses may occasionally be cancelled or rescheduled, if the confirmed participation in advance is very low.

In order to see the price and to register you will need to be logged in at ProZ.com.

My bests,
Helen
