What People are Saying

“I found the course informative and easy to follow. I have a lot of experience of online training courses and there are a few things I particularly appreciated about this course: having supporting resources such as the manual, a count down to the length of video time remaining and the fact the videos are in bite size chunks making for a less daunting training prospect and providing a sense of achievement as each is completed and the time is reduced!”

- Louise, Self Employed from Greater Manchester

“Videos were very clear, easy to understand, and a good length.”
