    “I chose a package of 4 courses to advance my knowledge within a career in the back pain industry. The packages were flexible and it was easy to build the courses to suit my own requirements. I found the response time with online chats to be almost instant and always very helpful. I love having a dashboard so I can quickly see my progress and ‘tick off’ each module section. Practical assessments are organised and professional with friendly staff. It’s been a really easy way to return to learning and the flexibility of the course suits a busy lifestyle and full time work”.
