SPECIFIC CAREERS 3
Ifound this course to be educating, skill equipping and relevant. Thecourse provides new knowledge which one is not aware of beforeundertaking it. It also has practical methods and examples which canbe experienced outside of class. Therefore, the course is not justabout theoretical information but also about practical things thatcan be observed. Finally, it is my opinion that the course equips uswith knowledge that is relevant to the career path that we aretaking. As a student, the course not only met my expectations butalso exceeded them. It proved my initial assumption that it would bea boring and impractical course wrong as it turned out to be veryinteresting. Improvements on the course would entail constantlyupdating the course content. New emerging methods and proceduresshould be inducted in the course.
