It has taught me new and interesting things so far and I am excited to complete the remaining modules.

I am so glad I came across this course.

Cindel Simmill

This course was great!!!!! Made me knowledgeable in more than one way.

I work in a landscaping company doing all HR and Bookkeeping, but wanted to further my education and start being able to help clients more than just sending them an invoice, I wanted to start designing as well. I am still going back and reviewing the plants knowledge and reviewing just in case.

I love that you can download the modules for future reference, I will definitely be using this as a tool. And possibly taking more classes to further my education. Thanks to this course I am on my way!

Renee Cruz

This is an absolutely brilliant course, I really enjoyed it and it consists of very detailed information. The test at the end was slightly tricky so it’s important to pay attention to all aspects of the course content. I would highly recommend this course to anyone thinking of becoming a wedding planner, with an interest in this topic or even to anyone who is getting married as there’s a lot of information which could be found useful and certain things that give you good ideas. I loved this course and I’m sad it’s over. It was definitely brilliant from start to finish and is great value for money!

Natasha Boreland

Great teaching layout for each module. Clear and easy to follow studying method.

I found this way of learning perfect for me, as I could study at my own pace in the comfort of my home. Being dyslexic, I enjoyed studying the modules in my own time. Support always on hand if needed, plus a bonus of being able to print off each module to add my own notes.

Easy to use layout of the course, allowed myself to swiftly go through each module, with a small test at the end of each module before moving on, making sure the knowledge had sunk in! With a final Test at the end to complete the Diploma. I would recommend this site to others, looking to add to their skill set.
