This has been such a wonderful experience! I will definitely recommend this training. Very friendly atmosphere, lots of content covered and materials provided! Not only have I been trained in terms of medication training, but also to improve my presenting skills and confidence! Great course.

The course was very educational and enjoyable with a relaxed atmosphere and TeeJay is a professional and it shows. We had lots of fun and it was well worth every penny. I have learned a lot about myself as a person. I would recommend this course to anyone. Thank you TeeJay.

Extremely informative course. Makes you re-evaluate your training delivery and helps you to gain knowledge in how candidates receive and understand course topics. The medication side of the course is really thorough and the examples given were shock and awe plus fun :-) Well done TeeJay.

Shirley McCrea , Independent Training

The content was very clear and the research around it, the trainers knowledge as a pharmacist was very valuable. It allowed me to learn things that I’ve never heard of in all the years I’ve done medication training.
