Alex was an excellent speaker, full of enthusiasm for her topic which she is highly knowledgeable on. There was a LOT of information in this course that even the most experienced of nurses would be able to glean tips from. Great value for money and easily accessible.

Having completed the ISFM Diploma in Feline Nursing a couple of years ago, much of this course was revision of knowledge I already had, but was still well worth taking part in. Alex gave me a different person's viewpoint on feline handling and behaviour, and having the slides talked through, along with photos for practical demonstration, allowed for a more visual learning tool, compared to the written format of the diploma. I'm also pleased that I appear to be doing stuff right in practice and when advising owners, as old habits can die hard and it's easy to slip back into former ways. This course has refreshed my knowledge and skills and given me a new drive to teach colleagues and owners about feline handling and behaviour. This course is excellent value for money, delivered by a knowledgeable speaker who is passionate about what she does! Thank you.
