    Nikita Barrett

    I really enjoyed this course. Although I already work in customer services, I found it very informative and I picked up a lot of useful information and tips. What I liked about the course was that it was something you could do at your own pace and it was easy to follow. It made me feel more relaxed about my studying and put me at ease when it came to the final test at the end. The modules were just the right length, with plenty of content to get your teeth into but not too much that it became overwhelming, and that made it better to learn and digest what was being said. I would certainly recommend it!

    Stephen Rawlinson

    This short course was actually very informative and interesting, and learned far more than what you can read on the internet. The modules are an excellent way to learn, as you can complete each module in your own time.

    I feel as though I’ve learned a lot from this course and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in starting a career in alternative medicine or as a starter in your own business. This certificate can lead onto other courses in this field.

    The customer service was excellent, quick and easy to apply online and even better, you can pay by PayPal.
