In my job it is a requirement I have an up to date infection control certificate-but I would struggle to get to college to do a course so I was delighted when I found this one- thank you.

I felt it was important for me to have an up to date infection control certificate so I can ensure we maintain required standards in our setting. This course was superb- it was clear, straightforward and was an excellent refresher. It was completely up to date with current guidelines as well.
