Q3. Do you monitor our Supervision and Logbook progress?
No! It is entirely your own responsibility to monitor your progress. As mentioned above, there is no graduation without the EDF 5534 unit completed. And, experience has shown that it is extremely difficult to make up time towards the end of your course. Plan ahead and keep your Supervision and Placement hours on track.
