I bought this course because I wanted to refresh my knowledge about pet nutrition.

Gail Plumb - Warrington

Armed with this course I know I am doing right by my dogs

I stared this course due to all the hype about dog food and what is right and what is wrong, I personally feed my dogs on a raw diet, so I also wanted to make sure I was giving them the best and the right foods, I know raw is the best I also know raw is not for everyone, dog or cat, now armed with this course I know I am doing right by my dogs, and I can help inform others with what I have learned from this.

Joanne Chinn - Truro

Great value

Great value and quick response to purchase.

I have done other courses and they were very expensive. Very handy being able to use my phone to access. I can do work on course while on lunch breaks.

Looking forward to qualifying and being able to find a better paid job with it.
