At forty six years of age and being dyslexic at times I find it very hard but I am not complaining as I am really enjoying the course and feel I'm really learning something...”

The course was excellently set out to meet all of my needs in preparing me for university. The marking of my work was prompt and very well explained on ways could improve which showed in my marks for later modules. I have thoroughly enjoyed my course with compass and have recommended you to a lot of my friends and associates in the field of dog training and professionals which i have met along the way i look forward to getting my certificate and my overall grade.
