What have others learners that done this NVQ with Cognitia said?

I have recently completed by IQA level 4 qualification with  Cognitia and found my assessor very approachable and helpful if I required assistance.  The e system used was very organised and user friendly which resulted the whole process to run smooth.   The feedback from my assessor was very positive but was constructive when it needed to be.  I have now signed up to carry out my EQA qualification with Cognitia and am confident I will get the excellent level of service as I had before.
