I was looking for a course that I could fit in around my busy life, so an online course was the obvious choice, however, I didn't know what to expect, would it practical enough? Would I learn enough? Having just completed it, I can tell you definitely yes! I have learned lots, I have been stretched and challenged and it has made want to learn even more!
