As a single dad from Estonia I find it unfair that I have to make additional expenditures in order to start teaching. Items like IKO cards are forced upon me, and this I feel is not good. As a general rule if I purchase a service then it is not OK, that I also have to purchase additional items in order to use that service. This is called hidden costs and it's not cool. Also this gives a pyramid scheme like taste to the program.

Il corso è stato superiore alle mie aspettative x organizzazione, argomenti, livello di preparazione dell’istruttore. Vorrei solo suggerire che il libro dovrebbe essere consegnato un mese prima dell’inizio del corso. Il corso è molto intenso e dopo 8 ore tra pratica e teoria è complesso riprendere a studiare. Per godere a pieno dell’esperienza occorre aver la possibilità di studiare in anticipo. Grazie x la vs professionalità

Tutto era interessantissimo e svolto in modo egregio. È stato superiore ad ogni mia aspettativa: gli istruttori, l’organizzazione, gli argomenti ecc. Però c’e una cosa che vorrei sottoporre come spunto di osservazione: il libro dovrebbe essere fornito un mese prima del corso. Il corso è intenso e serrato, è difficile studiare dopo 8 ore di teoria e pratica(sotto un sole caliente). Mi sarebbe piaciuto godermelo in maniera più rilassata avendo approfondito in anticipo gli argomenti. Vi rigranzio e mi complimento x il vostro ottimo lavoro.
