Once again, very happy with the course and trainer. Jim was great and made the content easy to follow and understand. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for effective and easy way to learn. As I am not great at self studying the classroom environment was perfect for me. After attending the course for 5 days I sat my last 2 exams on Monday and Tuesday and had no issues passing at all. Thank you once again!
We were suggested to read the course material before attending the course, I read section one in 3 1/2 hours. The tutor Paul Valpy took four days to go through section one it was appallingly slow. On the final day he started section two which is equivalent to half the exam questions by giving out a “ cheat sheet” of 30 correct answers saying we should learn the answers . I feel I’ve been conned by Simply Academy.Response : Dear Geoff I’m sorry you thought it necessary to complain. Mr Valpy's been presenting CeMAP training for well over twenty years, and he’s method of delivery and style predominately stands the test of time in terms of first time examination success. The purpose of spending so much time on Unit 1 is that it does need to be trained and not just read through. Unit 2 is a quite different scenario in that it is primarily a read and remember arrangement. While Unit 2 represents 50% of the required marks it is quite a bit smaller than Unit 1 and some material ports from Unit 1. Mr Valpy’s training style therefore encourages candidates to keep focused and involved whilst building on many of the topics discussed in Unit 1 to create a picture. Having used this process for many years it is a proven strategy. Once again I am sorry you felt the need to comment in such a way, should you need any further support do feel free to get in touch.
Pete was brilliant, funny (in an unconventional way) and made the subject matter interesting and engaging. I haven't yet done my exam but I am not worried about it now as Pete gave me the knowledge and the confidence I needed. I'm really happy with the course and how it was taught.
I have recommended this course to many people who are looking to get in the industry, I just hope they get Paul Valpy as their teacher, as he is the best teacher I have ever had. I can't speak highly enough of how great he is. Huge thanks to him for his explanations, humour and positivity throughout the course
