Im getting posted there next week as i finish my BMQ on Thursday; i've asked around at the school and everyone has been telling me it's nice, but im getting mixed feedback that it's going to be Green Sector all over again...just looking for a quick tid bit about it thanks.
Speaking as someone who just finished course there, the accommodations are quite nice, one to a room.
As for the course itself - it's difficult. There are many things that, upon initially seeing them, you will think are nonsensical and silly. Trust me when I say that it all comes together at the end of the course and not to dump any information that you're given. Get close with your course mates, find out your strengths and weaknesses (everyone has them) and help each other out as much as you can. Group study is not only your friend, it is absolutely crucial. If we wouldn't have done group studying, I know there would have been many more training failures. You will have some long days and long nights.
The course itself is rewarding, but be prepared to jump into it head first for 4 months, to sit through hours upon hours of power point slides and still be able to pull out the required info and put it to practical use. Luckily, I found that the course staff were phenomenally professional and if you require extra help and make it known, they will provide it.
PM me if you've got any more questions.
