GRADUATE TESTIMONIAL

"In the 2 years I’ve been studying the CP it has sparked a hunger for learning in me, always looking for new information and experiences. I simply would not have grown at the same rate studying another course. I definitely feel each element of the CP has given me confidence in important, complex choices I need to make, like where or when to study in the future.”
