Enrol on course
When should I enrol?
In short: as soon as you are ready. All live course dates are available for you to enrol on.
Unlike most training centres MMS has a limit on lecturer to student ratio and keeps its class sizes small. We therefore have limited availability and courses fill up in advance. We recommend registering as soon as you are ready to secure your place to avoid disappointment.
