“The changes in dates is due to basic requiremen­ts for all courses, by world new standards that there is an online component they must do before attending the physical component

“The course will remain in Harare at the advertised venue and conditions are still the same. We are happy with the overwhelmi­ng response from coaches in and around Harare.
