Slide The help and support you get from Chris and his team is amazing. It's not easy when you're in
your fifties and been away from school many years. I would recommend this course to people
of any age.

Slide My tutor was excellent and seems to work 24/7 because feedback was so prompt and even
received over the weekend. He answered the couple of questions I asked even faster. The
course was excellent value compared to others and allowed me to meet my objectives and
receive the qualification I needed easily.
