So many knowledgeable trainers who are willing to do whatever it takes to see you succeed. Small class sizes optimises our learning environment and there's always opportunities being offered to us at every turn. Couldn't be happier to be studying with Field. Such a supportive place to learn.
My experience training with Field has been great, the trainer has been very helpful and informative and makes himself available outside of class time if you need assistance with anything.
The team is awesome and so helpful would highly recommend.
