    Highly informative

    This course focused primarily on working in end of life care. I’m a care worker and have to often face this very situation. It can be challenging and I needed guidance on how to deal with all the difficulties that come with end of life care.

    Great customer service

    I was guided right from the start of the course. A representative spoke to me and I was soon able to figure out what to do. This made it easier to proceed with the training. Great effort!
