Full Colour, illustrated pdf notes
Full colour, illustrated pdf notes (download link sent after of purchase) which are carefully worded and appropriately illustrated are an integral part of our courses. Because lectures tend to have an effect which lasts only a short while, particularly if no notes are give out, we believe our pdfs are the key to making your newly gained knowledge much more long-lasting (notes supplied via direct download as soon as you book the course). As part of that philosophy you will recieve detailed notes covering the whole course that will both aid learning while on the course and in the weeks and months afterwards.

Limited spaces - book now to avoid disappointment!
