  1. Level 4 Coaching and Mentoring


    Very good course. I already knew a lot of this content as I am an instructor for military trainees. Good content. Highly recommend.

  2. Review on the Advanced Diploma in Coaching and Mentoring


    I am awarding 3 stars as the actual theory in the course was detailed and varied. However, the reason that I couldn’t award 5 stars was due to the exam at the end. It was so poorly worded, it was difficult to understand what was being asked of you. It was very frustrating after you have spent a lot of time studying.
