The course was great and comfortably passed CeMap 1 which I wouldn't have done with out attending the week long course, well worth the investment for me especially as self financing. The one thing that would massively improve the course is if the SA notes and work books etc tied up with what the trainer works from as at times the two seemed very disjointed and all over the place which caused confusion at times. Apart from that I'm looking forward to attending CeMap 2 & 3 in a couple of weeks time and feel confident of passing both modules. Would highly recommend - it's hard work but you'll get out what you put in. Thanks Karl
For the course cost lunch should be included. Also I dont see the advantage of using Simply Academy. The trainer was using his own materials most of the time and ways to remember key facts. It would be cheaper and wiser to go to him direct for training. The added cost of using simply provided no advantages from what I could see above and beyond what the trainer was providing .
I found Glenn brilliant as a trainer, and his style of combining real life stories with humour and clearly passion for the subject meant I learned an incredible amount in a short time. Having never worked in the industry, with very little knowledge and only starting the pre course reading a couple of days before I achieved a distinction in unit 1 (90%), and only 1 point of a distinction for unit 2 (88%). This is testament to the material from simply and delivery from Glenn. Look forward to part 2 & 3!
Glenn is a great guy and very knowledgeable in his field. He leaves no question unanswered and encourages group thought and discussion. The course was great for strcutured learning and self study. Also a great building to work/study from with good facilties and with good access into Edinburgh. Looking forward to cemap 2&3 with Glenn!
