The course was very comprehensive and easy to understand, and at times when it proved to be difficult for me, Melanie was always an email or a message away. She's a true sweetheart, she made sure I understood everything, and by the time I finished the course, all the knowledge I've gained became second nature, and now I apply it on a daily basis.
