    HI Brian. I am very interested in doing the above course. I have made enquiries to do this exact same course in South Africa and was wondering what the cost would be for your course. Of course as an American I would prefer not to travel all the way to South Africa and so would be most appreciative of all and anybody advice and information you may have with regards your course.

    With thanks
    Chris Bennett
