Hi Reed......I have done the level two by distance learning and now doing level 3 at college. Level 2 does a lot of basic stuff that level 3 does not cover. I would feel my knowledge lacking in certain areas had I has missed it out. Sometimes its the basics that are important. Its also given me more confidence to do well in level 3.
I enjoyed the distance learning course but you do have to be very self motivated which thankfully I was. I found it exciting getting my work back from the tutor..lol.. I took the exams at my local horticulture college Reasheath.
Many correspondence colleges do special offers for different courses.. The HCC Horticultural Corespondance College have special offers and allow you to pay in installments...this is the way I payed as I could not afford the lump sum at the beginning of the course. They send you the course material as the payments progress.
I hope you enjoy your learning ...
