Having recently qualified as an ETM instructor, I wanted to achieve further qualifications. I chose Smart Qualifications to do the Award in Step and Aqua Aerobics. Both courses were delivered professionally by fantastic instructors.  Within 4 weeks I had qualified in both. Smart Qualifications make learning fun which makes you at ease.  Help was always on hand if needed. I would highly recommend Smart Qualifications.
