    The online study and support worked very well for me as also did the hard copies in the form of instruction manuals, I found that I could work towards my goal at a time and pace that suited my work commitments.

    I am new to the industry so felt a bit daunted at first but the books and online material have been excellent, as has the support I have been given by my tutor. Any time I need help I can ring the office or send an email. I'd definitely recommend this course!
