I attended the Diagnostic Imaging Certificate in 2021 and was impressed with the professionalism and high quality of this organisation from the beginning. Staff were always helpful and at hand, aiming to keep us safe and provide us with a valuable experience at the same time. A special thank you to Alison who is such a patient and caring soul. I have learnt so much during the course not only theoretically but also practically. Thanks to this course I am also a much more confident clinician.

I can only highly recommend this course!
