I have found the training via the Life Science Access Academy to be excellent and I know many of my colleagues have as well.

The content is always kept up to date and there is huge and interesting variety of topics covered. The site is curated in a way that makes it clear and easy to navigate. Also, the staff at Life Science access Academy are friendly and responsive and all the experts are always knowledgeable in their areas.
