Brilliant so helpful and polite..
Initially, I had a very friendly and respectful conversation with one of the sales team, a gentleman called Steve Devine, who in subsequent phone calls explained everything in thorough and simple terms. Not only is Steve friendly and have brilliant interpersonal skills, but he is also very supportive and irrefutably goes the extra mile so as to ensure your full understanding of every detail of the course, and that you are well informed about the decisions you want to make.
Yes definitely very helpful and understanding towards my requirements. 😊

They're extremely patient and are never get frustrated with repeating themselves, I was really nervous just for the booking but their service is just great it seems like a breeze!
If I could type all the experiences just in the booking stage this review would be too long.
So long story short... you got nothing to worry about they got you.👊
Really helped me in finding the right product for me, which was the most convenient in terms of learning options and assessment dates and locations

Sammy has been looking after me throughout my process.
She’s kept me really informed, made my options clear, offered great and has got me really excited to start the course!
They really care about the customer and make everything easy even through phone I was able to do everything due to their understanding and kindness
Very helpful and informative, have full explanation of details of courses available to me and rang back when they said they would
I've had a really great start in my journey, i have chosen the E-Learning fitmess level 2, PT level 3 and Strength amd Conditioning level 4. Everyone involved has been supportive and have outlined all the details very well. I had doubts about commiting to such a long course with all payments but was made to feel more at ease prior to booking. I have only recently started the course but what the work i have completed is very interesting and all the tools are available to gain a great degree of knowledge, whether that be course manuals and tutors that are available through email. I'd highly recommend the course to others. I have been very impressed so far! :)
They stop at nothing to assist student.
It is Early days but so far every member of staff I have spoken to in the booking process have been so lovely and helpful. I am really excited to start my learning.
