What our students say about our Healthcare Training Courses
“I have only good words to say about The College of Progressive Education and the Helathcare Assistant course. We had brilliant teachers who taught us many practical and useful things which I applied immediately when I started working. They were helpful and had a lot of patience. If I was to do another healthcare course in the future, I would always check if College of Progressive Education offers it. I had no problem finding a job and was offered a job even before I finished my course. Progressive College taught me a lot and equipped me with a knowledge which can never go away, with which I can help people and which makes me a better person.”
Thank you, I am eternally grateful.
