As an ergo consultant, this is the second class I've taken from Alison; each course has included a lot of invaluable info for me, even after many years of working as an ergonomist! The first course turned out to be instrumental in my success over the past year, and with the chair assessment class I feel I have much more depth than previously in my approach to chair ergonomics. Also - I always love Alison's inspiration and encouragement! ~ Stephanie W., Ergonomics Consultant
