Learn what past participants have said about PetroEdge training courses

As a non-technical writer, I still found this course incredibly useful. Within my department, I provide charts and various visual displays for reports but do not have much experience writing the actual reports. The information I've learned in this course will definitely make me more of an asset for my team.
