I have enjoyed gaining my qualification immensely

“When I first found out about the opportunity to learn with Onfit Training College I was super excited for a few reasons.

Firstly, the fees are significantly less than other courses of the same curriculum.  And secondly, as a busy mother I could choose to study at the times that were suitable for me and my family.

Home based learning was the simple and easy choice for me and with the support and service Onfit has provided to me personally, I have enjoyed gaining my qualification immensely.”
