My experience with future step has been amazing. I had full support from my tutor when I needed him (Stuart Lenton) and he helped me to understand things if I was a little confused. The course was straight forward to use, displayed in a simple format that was easy to complete.
I received the results from my assessments in a short time frame and also found out my end result in less than a week of submission. I would recommend the service and course I received from future step to anyone and everyone and would go back without hesitation if I was to complete another course.
