    Hello Adrien my first reaction is why l did not find this web site earlier,having done so it has been very good in its basic form,my next thought is what will the rest of the course consist of ,and can the course be saved for future use.
    With respect as l am a cautious person by nature how secure are my details if l submit them which in its self is a really naive question, what is the subscription for the course.
    Regards Alan
