HETC Course Review

“I have had the pleasure of being a HETC student for the past few months. They have well driven and organized trainers who develop guiding relationships with their students. They are always eager to take up extra responsibilities so that students are able to fully understand the course we are taking.  

"They have the best trainers, always there when you need them, they explain things extremely well and always push you to do your best. Couldn't have done it without them."
