    Addiction to alcohol and drugs is a widespread illness made even more serious because it is so often concealed.

The course aims to enable the student to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to help the suffering individual and their family members into recovery.

Professional and helpful - 100% would use again!

I took the online Level 3 Dog Grooming course with the final exam at the end. I know it is just an online course with no practical skills required but this is the next best thing! It provided me with amazing resources and informative modules of different areas. I found this course very good and would definitely recommend it!
