I've done it!

"I loved the practical part of the course and how long it lasts. You're three months out on-site which is great because you learn more. The flexibility, the people, my whole class, they were all lovely. The workload was reasonable and I had a lot of time in school time to do the work. I've done the course and it's great. Definitely do it, take the plunge, it's awesome, easy,'s great."
