The access to the course was easy and simple to use the virtual learning area. The tutors where on hand with messages and if needs be phone calls. I enjoyed the course and it was good that the course could be paused as I needed as life changed and things made it that I couldn’t continue the course at times. This is very useful being military expecially when deployments come around the course can be paused until the end of the deployment.
