The learning is invaluable and I call on it everyday in my job. While OC was perfect for my situation, online 24/7 education comes with big challenges namely instant support with questions at the time you are studying. The biggest help is to form a Facebook chat with peers for a more immediate support group out of business hours. My connections through the Facebook group got me through the tough modules and I secured placement through a fellow member.
Cas was a great help and another young man from student support. Thank you I'm extremely happy it's completed.
