'Very helpful to understand better when an employee is under the effect of a substance.'

'I appreciated a lot having real statements from users, it also made it very  easy to follow the content of the lecture.'

  • Substance abuse and its effects session - Malta Employers Association

 

'Course was delivered in an excellent way and overall the topics were covered in a comprehensive way.'

  • Wise use of technology sessionUniversity of Malta​

'All three courses where excellently delivered and gave me better awareness to both the identification of addiction traits and also to the effects of such addictions in general. Overall I strongly believe that these courses helped me open my eyes to occurrences in society which I have thus far taken for granted due to the lack of knowledge I had in the subject.'

 

'I can assure you that this was a successful activity which opened the eyes of all of us from management to all levels of the organisation.

SEDQA's contribution to the wellbeing of society is immense!'
