It takes commitment and determination to get through, but it's worth it in the end. I studied as a distance learner because of my location. I would recommend the course to others, mainly because you don't have to be seated in a classroom to obtain this qualification: most people here [Cayman Islands] do not really have the time to attend classes, and most companies prefer to support a student in the area they work in.
Tia Whittaker, a litigation clerk, is the first student from the Cayman Islands to gain the Level 4 Diploma.
