Dear James After recently completing this course, I found that it was a good course that was structured very conveniently, with instructions and questions that were easy to understand. I was able to find all answers in the material given and completed it in about 1 day. The only negative I can find with the course is that there was a lot of reading required, however I understand that it was necessary toward completing this course. Overall, this was a very good course that was conducted very well, I would recommend this to anyone wanting to expand their knowledge and gain more experience. Kind regards
