Course Testimonial

“We have a lot of hands on activities during the course of the weekend. On top of that, there’s also the theory based knowledge as well that’s helping us to develop the foundation and skills required to become a competent clinician and know how to handle everyday situations and bridge this all back.

I feel like I’m getting a great education here. I truly can’t wait to head back home and bring this into my everyday work life.”
