We are passionate about educating and bringing more practitioners in the field of healthcare.

We are committed to keeping the prices at such levels that they are most affordable to as many students as possible while not compromising our content. We aim to become the market leaders in the field of healthcare education even at the expense of our own profits.
Why am i having trouble receiving your emails?
Email service providers like google and yahoo block email to protect you from unwanted or malicious email such as scams and spam. But commonly they mistake email you do want for email that is spam. If you unblock or whitelist an email address or domain name, emails from that address will be more likely to get through. We highly recommend doing this to make sure the emails we send you are delivered straight to your ‘Inbox’ and not your ‘Junk Mail Folder’ as this can result in you losing important information or not receiving your certificate.
You can achieve this in a few different ways:
- Add our email address to your email Contact List
- Mark messages in your Junk Folder as ‘Not Spam’ or ‘Safe’
- Create a filter or add our domain to your Safe Senders list
Is there a minimum age limit to begin studying with you?
Yes, you need to be at least 16 when you begin and at least 18 when you start using our certifications to apply for jobs.
