    :

    The course is very well structured and provides a comprehensive understanding of DES to people who are totally unfamiliar with it. The synergistic effects of DES across Energy & Atmosphere category are analysed thoroughly despite iterative specific references to Con Edison.
    In practical terms, the course should have a timeline bar to allow the attendee to pause the course at any time or move back/ forward.
