do I need to buy Enhanced License form Shutterstock if I want to use it's photo on my course?

As far as I can tell, the only reason you would need an enhanced licence is if your "production budget" is in excess of 10,000 USD.
Check out their trustpilot rating: https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.shutterstock.com
The reviews chime with my experience of them. I don't trust them. How do you prove your budget was less than 10,000 USD? I wouldn't be surprised if you had a hit course, they come after you.

hi, RICH where do you source your photos from?

Sorry I'm not much help here as I rarely use photos, but I did use Shutterstock once and regretted it deeply.

Would you mind sharing with me why so maybe I'll not do the same mistake?

Read the trustpilot reviews linked above. Same experience.
