Course reviews

I now have a much better understanding of anaphylaxis and how to administer an Epipen. I enjoyed learning about the cross allergens that I was not aware about before.

Jon Jenkins, SCC

I feel much more confident now that I could administer an Epipen to a young person in our service if I needed to without panicking.

Learning about different types of allergens and labelling was very informative. 

Mandy O’Niel-Chaggar, Cannock
Very well presented, lovely trainer and good use of resources and materials. The videos were helpful and I enjoyed the allergens exercise and the practical exercises. 
Sarah Walker, Burton-on-Trent
Good course. Very interactive and the trainer was very enthusiastic. I learned that allergens can be found in unexpected things and the importance of good risk assessments for our young people. 
Emma Callister, SCC

TeeJay was easy to listen to and explained things fully. I was surprised at how many foods and drinks have additives which may affect other allergies. Really good course.
