Generally the training provider is very good. There is lots of support to help pass exams but i believe some classes can be boring. There is alot of help if needed outside classes.

Line manager is very good and approachable, the buddy system is also good when welcomed into the firm. I feel there should be more opportunity to catch up with line manager to talk about problems and get guidance of how to progress faster.

The salary is good and expenses on mileage help to pay towards travel costs. Salary is competitive.
