Amazing! The support through the enrolment and induction stage have been phenomenal. Thank you so much!
Saw an Ad on Facebook in which I thought was too good to be true. When I see “Free” I always think there is a catch. There is not.
I have completed quite a few of these courses now and just signed up to another! The support is fab.
Great communication! To be able to have a tutor is reassuring if I need them for any aspect of the course.
When I first saw the ad I thought this was too good to be true. But it isn't. Free education and the certificate is actually free!
The contact from start to finish has been excellent. I would encourage anyone to sign up for a course.
If you meet the eligibility criteria then YES!
