E Learning explanation video


The online course puts everything in front of you that you need to pass, it’s easily digestible format with quizzes to test understanding at the end of each module. I also used the live clinic recordings as podcasts in the background while doing other stuff so it didn’t feel like intense study all the time but I was still absorbing knowledge.

Further to this, joining the clinics live on a Wednesday and Sunday are an invaluable way of asking questions and gaining the confidence to speak on teams, which certainly helps with the orals. If there’s any question Barry’s doesn’t know the answer to, you don’t need to know it to pass!

A worthy and necessary investment in career progression. Closest you can get to guaranteeing a pass in my opinion.
