I can’t recommend this course enough! The tutors are amazing and so supportive. They are always on hand for advice or even just some reassurance. The lectures are very informative and the practice questions after each lecture really helped me with my at home studying. Even though I did my course through the pandemic you wouldn’t have thought it at all they always had a solution for everything and made it so easy to complete. Thank you!

I found the nursing course very structured and easy to follow week by week. I had a very supportive tutor who was helpful and able to answer any questions I had. The mock exam scenarios were beneficial as we were able to mix dental materials, practice medical emergencies etc. We were given feedback afterwards which gave me confidence for the real exam. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wishes to follow a career in dental nursing

Great course with plenty of support throughout. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to my colleagues. Erica is a wonderfully down to earth and knowledgeable tutor who I felt really comfortable to go to with any of my concerns or queries

I decided to further my career as a dental nurse by carrying out a qualification in oral health education, the course was interesting and fun, Erica was a great tutor and very easy to get along with, I confidently passed my exam and went on to hold my own OHE sessions within the dental practice where I work.
