“From the first conversation that I had with Suzanna I felt relaxed and confident that I would enjoy participating in Smart qualifications courses. Since then I have completed 3 courses and hope to complete many more. All were delivered in a professional, easy to follow format. Sections marked and returned promptly and electronically, as were all certificates. New friends and contacts made. Nothing is ever too much trouble and help and advice given all the way. Totally recommend using Smart qualifications thank you Suzanna and Clare. ”

Amanda – Rutland

“The circuit course I did with Smart Qualifications provided all the online learning material that I needed to complete the course with confidence. The instructor was available via telephone and email to give support and help with any clarification that I needed. Having the freedom to complete the course in my own time frame made it totally achievable. I will be back for more!”
