This is the best training i have ever done in the medical industry all the staff were brilliant made to feel warm and welcome, also the training is in depth and they are so informative and give really good advice and scenarios which helps with the training.

I attended an AET course at basegreen academy. From start to finish I found all staff to be professional and very helpful. The trainers are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their roles and subject areas. As soon as I arrived I was made to feel at ease. The delivery of training was a good mix of PowerPoint, spoken and activity based which met all of my needs as a learner. Mathew and Stephen was on hand to answer any questions and was very easy to get on with. The building was clean and tidy, with plenty of sanitiser and hand washing facilities. Staff was all up to-date with all Covid procedures. Will definitely book more training with Basegreen.

I have dyslexia and i have had great support through understanding the terminology as well as support whilst on the course to have a better understanding of what was required prior to assessments. I have been doing my FREC 3 and FREC 4 with Matt and his team and really can't thank them enough for everything they have done.
