"The Therapist Assistant program seemed unique from all of the other courses in healthcare. From the first day of classes I knew I was in the right program. The teachers are genuinely passionate about the profession, and more and more health care professionals are becoming increasingly aware of what a Therapist Assistant has to offer. From working in mental health, to working with children or in a hospital setting, this course provided me with all of the skills I needed to really make a difference in people’s lives. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone that wishes to do the same. "
