    Well explored course

    The course in animal care was well explored and the modules were discussed extensively. As an animal carer I was pretty impressed with the standard. There was a wealth of information to be gained through this training.

    Great provider

    I would like to thank the support team at Global Edulink. They’ve been nothing short of professional and helpful. I required assistance in the beginning and I must say they went above and beyond to make sure I felt comfortable proceeding with the course.

    Thorough training

    Improved my understanding of animal care in more ways than one. While I had practical skills in this field, I lacked knowledge and this is where the course stepped in to help me.
