“The course was challenging, but highly rewarding. The entire experience was one of the most memorable of my life.

The Trainers are highly supportive with a genuine passion for teaching and passing on their knowledge. I cannot speak highly enough of them all.

If I had to pick, I’d say that the practical, hands-on learning (lab time, clinical skills assessments and clinical placements) was my favourite part of the course.

This course has changed my life and now I have the skills to follow my passion.”
