FAQ's

Each coaching course has its own specific pre-requisites (some are open entry) and these can be found on each course specific page of our website. It is the learner’s responsibility to ensure they meet the pre-requisites before booking onto the chosen course.

No, learners are required to attend all dates and times associated to the course they have booked onto. Failure to attend all dates and times will result in non-qualification and individuals will need to book and pay to attend the course again in full to become certificated.
