We subscribe to the mantra of study, plan and do and we try to structure our training courses this way as well. We’ve also found from student feedback that you want to know that you are on the right track in your learning so we have compiled a series of questions on each subject. These knowledge review questions are designed as a way to test your skills, but are primarily a way to ensure you are remembering the key knowledge in each subject. Where possible we also provide references for you to use to do further research if you get a question wrong. Read more..
Business Owner Interviews
We conduct regular live interviews with experienced business owners and business service professionals on topics that are included in the small business management course.
