Introduction to HSE Level 3

HSE Level 3 Intro

I cannot say much about the content yet, however, the pronunciation, though understandable overall, was confusing sometimes. I could not understand some words at once, like 'worker' or 'shortcut', cz they sounded pretty different from how they are usually pronounced. I will update the rating and the review at the end of the course. In addition, in the test where the answer is a choice of 'true' or 'false', it would be good to have the correct answer explained in case it is 'false'. Also, the sound while clear kinda sounds as if out of an empty room. Hope the instructor got better sound equipment since then... Update: starting from section 2 the sound becomes even worse. You may say that content is what is important but in fact, all small details are important too cz it shows if an instructor cares about their students.

There is a humming noise at the background of the speaker voice, that is kind of irritating while focusing to lecture. The noise improves after 25% completion of course.
