The course is wonderful but not really geared up for people with a disability like myself. The pass rate for most assessments is 100%. This means in order for you to pass you must achieve 100%. Missing classes is unacceptable if you miss classes you will be removed from the course. There are very little job opportunities from this course and no assistance in getting a job.
