can't see why it would be a problem, it does take a while to become registered. But if you had started minding already it wouldn't matter how long ago your course was, so i doubt the fact that you haven't started yet would make any difference.

fingers crossed that it is any day now

The course should be fine, i done mine about a year before i became registered and it had a few newer bits missing and i needed a few more bits in my terms and conditions but nothing major.

thanks thats a relief, its so annoying that ive had to wait so long, i knew it would take a while but 5mths is taking the p* i waited a month to see the doctor and now 2 weeks (at least) for the report.

but like i said any day now.........only prob is i cant advertise yet so its going to be ages til i actually start minding but i do have another job so at least money isn't an issue, then i really would be freaking out.
