What health professionals are saying about our training

 

We honestly have a fun time using Flinders. Any time that we have a problem in the office; we always say “Don’t worry; we can Flinder that!”.

I found everything useful & would recommend anyone to attend.

I thought this course was great and we can deliver a relevant service to the people of our community.  Would highly recommend this course to other health professionals.

I feel this is a powerful tool for clients to have.

Great course. Well presented, achievable outcomes, practical session with real people. Great!

I enjoyed my time and found this to be a very rewarding, interesting and a good time.

I look forward to completing it and to be able to access the tools for my practice.

I think this approach will be very beneficial not only to practitioners but also to clients.

I think my managers and colleagues would be very willing to support this approach at my workplace and I feel comfortable with approaching the Flinders training team for any further support.
