“I liked how they were willing to train you from the very basics. For instance, they taught me how to segment and clean heart rate data. Additionally, they taught me how to apply ECG and EEG machinery onto clients and run them through tasks. I have become a lot more comfortable when interacting with clients and children compared to when I first started. ”
