The above sounds like an excellent deal for the price. If I thought I could justify the cost I would certainly do a CP course with Excellentia.

I have bookmarked your website just in case my situation changes.

No. Its a training company. Their job is to train you, not employ you.

Ok, but beware... Many training companies claim to be operational, but aren't.

just to confirm this, I am embarrassed at the amount of work I have turned down from Excellentia. It would have more than covered the course fee. Unfortunately I have always been busy at the time when they needed someone. On a side note though I have managed to recoup the training costs in less than 6 months with CP work. I feel the training Excellentia gave me has helped me to do this.There are cheaper courses but will they offer you work? My first CP job was on my own, central London with multiple venues. If I had done a cheap course it would have shown at this point, but the training kicked in and the job went well.

But my point remains Karl... How can you say Excellentia are the best? What other course have you attended to compare them to?
