    Highly Recommended

    I wasn’t sure about distance learning as to whether the quality would be the same as direct learning, but I was proved wrong and I am amazed at how much detail had gone into the course. I took this course in health and safety for food manufacturing and my tutor was one of the best tutors I have had
