    Welcome to CF!:biggrin Im sure you will find plenty of reviews here. But at the end of the day its you who has to decide if you going to believe what you read and choose or not choose that provider.

    Good luck to whatever you choose!:biggrin

    Um, are you saying you've signed up for it already? And you don't know answers to fundamental questions like that? Take note, if you want to cancel (and from previous experience of people posting on here, you will decide to cancel at some point), you only have five days to do it in.

    I didn't say it was a bad thing, just saying it's the first time I've seen someone join who is looking for advice on training providers and you haven't suggested self-study to them. :)

    @Dublad, seriously think about what I just posted mate, you don't want to sign up for anytning without knowing all the facts because it will come back to bite you on the arse.

    i am not saying that you will, just bear in mind of the cooling off period if you decide to change your mind... good luck with your studies...
