Going into this course i though it was going to be like school. I was nervous because the school environment inst really for me, however as soon as i walked in my trainer welcomed me with big smiles and a great energy which remained the same through out the whole course. I went from note being sure about the course and not knowing whether i was able to complete the work given, to enjoying every minute of it. What i loved most about the course was that my trainer always catered to our needs, when things would come up in my personal life she would always inf d away for me to finish what i had missed. Another thing i liked was that we all worked together so if one of us was behind we would help each other in a team environment.
