'I learnt a lot from this course, I was pretty much blind to any aspect of care before completing this course but now I feel like I have a lot of understanding around this care and is definitely something i want to pursue.'
'I personally found the experience fantastic, the book looks weren't over filled with information but outlined everything that you needed to know which made it easier for the information to be taken in.'
