Really informative & very positive... They cut out all the nonsense and just gave it to me in plain terms: This is what you're going to get - and this is where you'll end up. That's all I wanted really.
David : UK
My advisor told me absolutely everything I needed to know. If I needed to know the specifics of a certain subject, he told me everything about that. He was friendly and really helpful.
Leroy : UK
They seemed very knowledgeable about the course... I made a decision quite easily, based on what they said.
Donna : UK
The advice was good. It wasn't overly complicated, so I wasn't bogged down with words that were unnecessary - and I understood where they were coming from. It was very professional.
Hayley : UK
I'd definitely recommend them. I think the price was very competitive - some of the courses out there were three times the price of what they were offering. To me, it's ideal.
Clive : UK
I feel I got good value for money. If you're a practically minded person, the course is perfect. I've also passed your details onto some other people I work with, because they're also interested in that field.
Lee : UK
I'd give the course 10/10. I've already convinced someone else to do one. I just think it's awesome to be quite honest - as long as you're prepared to put the effort in.
Leroy : UK
The advisor was absolutely brilliant. I felt like he was honest... I just can't fault it really.

The advisor was very friendly. He came across as very competent with his knowledge of the industry. He gave me a lot of confidence from that point of view.
