Jörgen was very pedagogical and the tempo was neither slow nor fast. The course gave me some inspiration to go back and review the methods we use at the bank.

Terms are used almost at daily basis at the office and I had earlier only high level understanding of the meaning, but now I am better aware of the real meaning.

Veldig god balanse mellom teori og praksis. Instruktøren benytter relevante eksempler fra virkeligheten. Instruktøren har meget god og bred kompetanse. Presentasjonen av det faglige innholdet er meget pedagogisk. Instruktøren inviterer også til interessante faglige diskusjoner underveis. Det faglige innholdet er svært relevant i forhold til mitt arbeid innenfor risikostyring.

Good introduction and easy to follow. The information is easy to relate to my daily work. Good variation with both PPT and whiteboard. It's good to write by yourself, sticks better. The instructor talks in a comfortable way and not too fast. Makes the class ask questions and "tests" us to be better.

Highly competent instructor, took time for all questions and to explain. There was both theory and practice, and the instructor showed the calculations "live" - very useful.

Really excellent course going to the core of the most fundamental parts. Very much "hands-on" was appreciated. Extremely well balance between theory and practice. Tempo is a little bit high at times but pauses to reflect was appreciated. The instructor really knows the subject and can explain things in many different ways. Really good.
