  • How, why and when training employees in the safe use of sharps can reduce their risk of injury.
  • What to do in the event of a sharps injury and what information employers need to record following an incident.

If your looking for a refresher or new career then this is a Fantastic site for courses. This is the second course I’ve done on this site and there very in depth and I’ve learnt so much. Very pleased. Would highly recommend.

Will be looking to do more courses in the future. Not only have I achieved two diplomas but I’ve got new services to offer in my salon for all my clients. Great time of year to have completed with christmas around the corner, my salons never been so busy and even taken bookings for 2017 already.

Would recommend to all!

I was worried that I wouldn't be able to manage this my course and work. But to my surprise and comfort this course is set out so well I find I'm enjoying learning again and look forward to putting my studying into practice in my future job role....it's brilliant !!!!

Marie Whitfield

WOW, I really learned so much more than I thought I would, this is an amazing course with useful insights and guidance. It was really well laid out, user friendly and a joy to participate in, even if you don’t want to start a business.

Any animal lover or owner would benefit from taking this course, as it covers so many aspects, from simple ways to handle a variety of different types of pets, grooming feeding and first aid as well.

It’s absolutely brilliant, I feel that I am now ready and prepared to start on my new journey. Thank you!

Loraine Simpson

A very helpful and well-structured introduction to Complete Animal Care. I haven't completed all the course content and modules, but I am finding it is clear and easy to understand and the topics are presented with enough detail to enable a good understanding, but not overwhelm you!
Very straightforward process to access content, good value for money and there is an extensive range of free downloadable resources relating to the course.
While learning at my own pace, the course is giving me all the information I need to start my dream career. I have already and will continue to highly recommend New Skills Academy!

This Makeup Diploma course I wanted to have almost half of my life, from when I was a kid. I really enjoyed studying and was really happy to finish this Makeup Diploma course.

Liked videos in modules, PDF’s were easy to save. Not only that I learned new tips on how to do makeup, I also learned how to deal with marketing and advertising for my future business.

I’m sure that will not be the last course that I finished. And I will highly recommend to my friends to this online tutoring as it is great way to gain knowledge. Thank you.
