What I would highlight: I was planning to go for a fitness intructor course for a while but my college did not offer that course and so I decided to leave it until I was suggested Open Study College. I enquired and got a call back. The information I got was the best and after talking to the intructor, I was super excited to start and so registered right then. The service was the best and the instructor also went out of the way to assist me in getting the apt course. I would surely suggest.
What could be improved: Everything was positive.
Would you recommend this course?: Yes
