self assessment page

You may use this self-assessment to determine your P.B.E.S™ Level. All newly registered students will enroll to either P.B.E.S™ Level 1, 2, or 3 only. The result from this self-assessment should be highly accurate. In any event should you register for the wrong Level, your assigned instructor can always ‘upgrade’ or ‘downgrade’ you to the correct Level during your 1st lesson. As such, your school fees will be re-calculated accordingly.
