    Some of the assessement questions were badly written and I needed a tutor to explain what was wanted and was also told the questions were to be rewritten as they were wrong. I have worked in this industry a long time and thought this course would further my knowledge but it didn;t. I feel I have paid a lot for nothing. Printing out your own certificate is a cop out, you should get a decent one sent to you with the amount the course costs

    since the course is very professional and can give better chance to achieve great advanced knowledge, so I think it would be better for me to keep up with learning the calculation examples are very useful, if the course could give more experienced examples, which would be better! .

    I want to work in the addiction side of counselling more than any other part of it. I found this course to be exactly what I am looking for to study, flexible and short enough to be a good starting point to ease into learning.
