    I’m interested in this course. Can you tell me how long has Inspire Education been running this course? I’m looking for reviews from past students who has completed this course with Inspire Education but can’t seem to find any. Most reviews are on Cert IV and Cert 3. If you could direct me to these reviews, I just want to see how others feel about doing this course.
