I can’t just sit around and watch TV (not having a TV helps with that), so I’ve gone back to school, sort of.  I came across a Groupon for an on-line course in Aromatherapy, and I thought that might be fun, so, 3 days into NO WORK BECAUSE MY JOB SHUT DOWN TO WORSHIP THE VIRUS, I have finished 14 fairly rigorous modules out of the 22 modules in this program.  Honestly, it isn’t what I expected (truth to tell, I just wanted to get more info on essential oil usage, as well as making oil blends), but, since I paid for it, I figured I might as well work my way through it.  It is kind of interesting learning about human biology and how the body systems work, and there are some suggestions of specific oils to use for certain issues.

Why am I telling you this? No, I am not associated with the provider, Centre of Excellence.  I just think that their courses are reasonably well put-together, and even though the diploma will be one of those British style ones (not pretty like my high school and college diplomas, or even my TEFL/TESL certificate; British style certificates/diplomas look  more like a packing slip), I feel like I’m learning something.

So, I will tell you the real reason I’ve decide to write this bit about Centre of Excellence courses:  I was just finishing my latest “assessment” (or exam), and had clicked on SEND, when I got an error message:  It was telling me that I had not answered one of the questions!!!!!!  Honestly, never in all my born days, have I had a tester remind me that I had left a question un-answered!  Usually, you just have to take the hit.

So, there you have it.  If you’re looking for something to do, look for a Groupon for this outfit (or a similar one: I’ve taken several of International Open Academy’s courses- and *they* have a really nice certificate!) Another thing I like about COE is that they have a Facebook page for people who are taking the courses.
