The information on the page is accurate, but not particularly well-written and the site is difficult to navigate. There is a large text box at the top of every page advertising for-pay training. Links are in yellow, which do not have enough contrast with the white background, and if you click on one of them, it's not clear how to get back to where you were, other than to just use the back arrow. There are also large blocks of text which make reading difficult. It feels like a graduate student assignment. So while the information may be accurate, the presentation is so distracting and frustrating that I would not use it in my course.
