Read our latest course reviews

Having completed the foundation cert, I found this course a huge jump up in knowledge and expectations. That being said, when I have completed the module assignments I am sure it will be of benefit and it has already enhanced my critical thinking in this arena. Whilst I understand the need for Virtual courses and the rise in popularity for various reasons, I am still adapting my own learning style to use this as best as possible. I am afraid I am still quite old school and like a classroom scenario.
