Here’s what our students are saying:

Flexibility and easy to follow layout.
Fantastic short course that provides the knowledge and information needed to raise confidence when talking about the course subject. Great for boosting the CV if wanting a career change in the future.
The teaching is excellent. It’s clear, precise and easy to follow. The knowledge from Sue is fantastic and it’s taught in a very understandable way with no rush. It’s been really good and I feel I’ve been able to retain the information well because of the way the course has been taught.
Very informative, enjoyed the content!
Thank you for the course, it has been very informative and helpful for me
I liked the course, it was very comprehensive. I’m surprised how much I enjoyed the online elements of the course, I thought I would do better in a face to face course but honestly being able to go at my own pace is really working for me as I can spend time on the bits I find tricky as they come up rather than making a note to look things up later… I like the YouTube videos, being able to pause or even speed up the video to match my pace works well for me. I do feel like I learnt a lot. I would 100% recommend the course to others
Depth of knowledge was excellent.
Useful links, detailed information, great supporting photos
