What People are Saying

“I have done a few online courses on different subjects in the past and I did not like doing them. I did find the pro paediatric very good, well put together and very informative. I was able to do this in my spare time and sometimes when I had a quiet moment at work. It has certainly changed my mind about doing online courses. Thank you.”

- Christine from NORFOLK.

“As a childminder that works evenings and weekends, it was proving very difficult to find a first aid course. This blended course has proved ideal, as I could do as little or as much as I could when I had time. Also found a local practitioner who is willing to come to my home to do the practical 6 hours and is going out of her way to fit me in the evenings when I've finished working. Overall extremely satisfied. Thank you ”
