Thank you to the great teaching from Penny.  A brain twister of a subject made interesting and relevant to natural therapists by the extra information and videos and input from Penny.  And funny and appropriately irrelevant!  I enjoyed Penny's enthusiasm and knowledge of all things biochemistry.  Great teaching style. - Simonne

I discovered that I really loved the Anatomy & Physiology short course it was fascinating, challenging and very personally rewarding. The course notes and references were very clear. My trainer Inga Saliba, provided great links to the best of online material relevant to the subject (appropriate to our level) and some extra more challenging material for the intellectually curious.

I initially signed up for the face to face training at the college before Covid 19. I am now a convert to the online course and will continue my studies in this format.
Thank you Inga you helped ignite a passion I never knew I had! – Sandra
