    Useful Course

    I found this course very useful and interesting. It was the best way to progress my learning whilst still working full time. I am applying all the knowledge I learnt within my job and am certain I made the correct choice course. Assignments were straightforward and relevant to what I was learning. I particularly like the fact that you can do the assignments in your own time and are not working to meet deadlines which is helpful when you have limited time to write your assignments.
