Having no experience at all when I started the course, It gave me an overview of a PA role and responsibilities.

In particular, how has it benefited your career?
It gave me the chances to be scheduled for interviews. When I was seeking for my first PA role, all interviewers focused on the course I completed at Souters. Before I took the course at Souters, it was more difficult to be considered for interviews.
