This package provides the opportunity for you to study on any device (mobile phone, tablet or PC), anywhere at any time using our professional e-learning platforms, directed and supported by a dedicated personal tutor blended with traditional course book study.


The development of your practical skills will require you to attend our training centre for either 20 morning sessions or 10 daytime sessions, we offer this training on a very flexible basis with attendance being programmed at mutually agreed times.


You will also be required to attend our centre for on-line examinations and assessments, once again these will be planned to take place at mutually agreed times.
