We’re proud to say that Land & Wave Accelerated Instructor Training course is approved by the Skills Funding Agency; our trainees are eligible for a Professional Career Development Loan. You don’t need to start paying a Career Development Loan off until you finish the course but the interest rate is relatively high

Some of our training candidates chose to fund the course with a personal loan, they take advantage of historically low interest rates to help fund professional development. You often need to start paying these loans back within a few months but interest rates are very, very low.

Here are three ways you could fund your course. It’s well worth doing your own research as deals change frequently
