“I would recommend SMART Qualifications to anyone. From the point of my initial enquiry, Suzanna and her team were quick to reply, and most importantly to me, they were well organised. Claire, my tutor gave excellent feedback and offered ongoing support. I wanted to work through my qualification quickly and they wholeheartedly supported this.
I thoroughly enjoyed working through my GP Referral Diploma with SMART and found the online component easy to use and emailing the LAP or portfolio to Tutor and the DVD assessment, just made the whole process quicker and much easier. Rather than the queueing at the Post Office everytime you submit, that I was used to.
A fantastic experience, from start to finish. Thank you.“
“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 Claire. “
