  • Martin Dooley
    Martin Dooley Ireland The course is excellent. It comphensively covers the topic and reinforces some of the main points by repeating them. I answered two questions in the assessment incorrectly and would like to question this. One concerned the factors to consider when using a VDU, the correct answer was screen size, I answered screen appearance. I feel that the size of the screen supplied is outside of a users control but the screen appearance can be adjusted by the user to give the most favourable viewing conditions. The second concerned MSD's and their symptoms the correct answer was headaches, I answered cramping. I believe that muscles would cramp from over use, Headaches may arise from not enough breaks from VDU use causing muscle fatigue in the eyes but is this not confusing for course paticipants? I found the case studies very beneficial and a useful way to apply the course material to real life situations and revise the material. Thanks. 2016-06-23 16:06:36
