What you should enquire about ....
Before registering for any short course, you need to carefully consider the following points:
  1. the cost and affordability of the course
  2. the content of the course and whether it will meet your needs
  3. the convenience of the location
  4. the experience of the trainer and the style of course delivery
  5. the likely size of the group (ie. number of participants)
  6. whether you are looking for any type of "formal" accreditation from the course - and if so, will this be provided. Usually you can receive a certificate of attendance - but this is definitely not the same as something that will contribute towards a recognised formal qualification. If you are seeking a formal qualification such as a Diploma for example, then chances are that you will need to be prepared to commit to something considerably more than a short one or two day course - and you also will need to undertake some assessment in the course.
Some of this type of information will be readily available within the published course description - but you may need to call the provider to ask some of these questions. Hope this has been of some help to you.
