CYQ

Catherine

“I am a qualified nurse but always enjoyed running and generally keeping fit so I enquired about the course and was impressed by the lecturers. They were very supportive and were always available either by phone or email and there was a big focus on passing – failure was not an option. Since the course I have been able to leave my nursing career and now work full-time as a personal trainer running successful outdoor fitness classes.”
