QCF Level 4 Diploma at Treelife

Hi all,

Has anyone done the above mentioned course? I am considering enrolling onto it as its very flexible and quite affordable after receiving further information from Treelife directly.

Has anyone done this course? Or even the level 6 course they offer?

Cheers!

Max

Hi Max,
Yes,

I attended the L4 with Andy at Syston and have completed the first year of the L6 with David.

I cannot shout their praises enough and the courses have & will be invaluable to me.

+1, very good course. Don't underestimate the amount of work to do though. Especially if you have a business to run and family to look after!!

Hi Gian, I would leave at least 2 and three hours every evening for assignment writing and reading.

Gian, you can always give them a call at Treelife, and they will be able to advise you on the amount of work involved. As said, its not an easy ride, which is what makes it a valuable qualification to have.
