    PVG- Adult Support and protection module. As a registered nurse and partner in a care at home/ nurse agency business, I have to say I'm highly impressed. I actually learned new things, whilst refreshing my current knowledge.The content was rich and linked seamlessly!

    Having whittled our future training company for the business down to 3, this has been my last company to have trialed (whilst also racking up some CPD points for myself). You are by far the most expensive. However, taking into account how up to date your training is, the content, ease of use (dashboard is so much clearer that others), relevant to Scotland (a must) and how responsive you were to my enquiry prior to commencing the course- this rates you as amazing at what you do.

    Looking forward to registering the business with you in the future and accessing all staffs' progress. I see that it's cheaper, the more modules accessed. A positive thing for us.

    Thank you & well done.
