Review courses available

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.

Much better training than I have ever received in the NHS!! Really keen to go back and make my training more exciting and interesting.

This course really helps you to understand the legal side of safe practice where medicine is concerned- and when working in the community, we all need as much protection as possible, both carers and service users equally. Very informative – thank you very much.
