i am currently doing the emotional intelligence course - highly recommended ( and i am a teacher by day and a night class tutor by night, so have some vague inkling of what makes a good course!)

the company running this seems to be the same as vision2learn, who were also offering free courses a while back, and on top of that they were also giving cashback for signing up via the various cashback sites, 3.50 through greasypalm for example, might be worth investigating, if they have a similar cashback scheme... or the old vision2learn one is valid for this company too.

If I am correct, this course is not undertaken fully online, there is an end of course assessmemt which involves meeting someone in a college or school or the like, but hey, sounds good. ;D

Just looked at this site and it has a clause in terms and conditions about fees relating to not finishing the course/attending a centre /fee for certificates etc - so hidden costs. Tried e-mailing them on their contact e-mails but none of them work - I am very suspicous - anyone have any more info?? I know there are other courses out there where they catch you out on these things.

I've subscribed at greasypalm and then at a vision2learn course but I haven't seen the 3.50 getting added at my account balance in greasypalm. Is it common to take long time, or do I have to do the course first?

Cheers

I've been doing the Web Entrepreneur course now for a few months through V2L and it's quite good. I have a final examination at North Trafford College sometime at the end of January which I'm half dreading as I haven't done a 'sit down'n exam since I left school 16 years ago, lol.

(I'm an Open University Student but my exams there have mainly been online as my courses are computer based, so copped out of the 'sit down' exam for the last 3 years, lol)

The Web Entrepreneur course is recommended to those less confident on a computer to help you get the best from it. I found it quite easy as I have experience but a certificate is a certificate and looks good on the CV.

Good Luck all those applying.

I've applied for several of their courses only to be told there's no college support available in my area, so i can't do any of them.

I'm not sure how many colleges are affiliated to this, but if they haven't got one near me then it can't be very widespread. So, take heart those of you in Scotland, you'e not the only ones missing out!
