What People are Saying About the Certificate in Medical Reception & Terminology

"I have nothing but positive things to say about this course. It’s been absolutely great and I find myself flying through the content. I haven’t had a lot of communication with the tutor as I find it easy enough to go through on my own, but the times that I have needed her she’s been very prompt at getting back to me. This is my first distance learning course and I’m really happy with it. It’s great to be able to do the course at your own pace.".

"Being new to the online learning and use to classroom/lecturer set up, I was apprehensive about how I would get on. The readings and course content have made me totally change my perception regarding to online learning and I tell others how good it has been for me and how good it is all going well for me. The tutor when I emailed for help for clarity on one question was helpful and like knowing they are approachable. Thank you".
