how can we help
All in all, we find the course offered by IEA value-for-money.
As long as you double check the class schedule and be one of the few to register for the revision sessions, you will be getting a good deal out of it.
That being said, the problem that most candidates have an issue with is the lack of support after these training sessions.
Without someone to correct their misunderstanding, they would feel lost and rudderless, like a boat without the backing of the wind for guidance.
