FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
CAN I FIT MY TRAINING AROUND MY WORK?
Absolutely! We train from Wednesday through to Saturday every week, and are flexible as to how many days a week you'd like to attend. You may wish to do a regular day for as long as it takes, or days to fit around your shift pattern, or perhaps you'd like to book block weeks. We try to be as accommodating as possible.
CAN I SPREAD THE COST INTO SMALLER PAYMENTS?
Yes you can. All of this can be arranged with our student administrator. We do require a deposit to secure your space, but we can discuss and agree on a payment plan when we know how many days a week you plan to train with us, and therefore how long it will take you to complete your course.
I DON’T HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE. DOES THAT MATTER?
Not at all! We will start right at the beginning and teach you everything you need to know.
