Reviews on this course

Kenny Alfred
4.0 01/04/2017
What I would highlight: The course was like you were actually doing clinical but though video and was a mixture of vocational education and real life, because the course was produced that way.
What could be improved: Well the least that I didn’t like was the lack of evidence needed to present to an institution like transcript of your learning and also a diploma that actually looks real.
Would you recommend this course?: Yes
Did this opinion help you? Yes (0)
