What Our Graduates Say.

Take a few minutes to learn what our most recent graduates have had to
say about our PTCB online course.

I took two of their PTCB practice tests the day before the exam and I’m glad I did. Embarrassingly, I failed the PTCB test twice before – and I was worried I was about to make it third-time unlucky. The full-length practice exams and calculations were a lifesaver, and really assisted me in my full and final preparation for the PTCB exam.

Excellent course. What makes things different is how well each lesson complements each other. The practice questions and exams are pretty much precisely the type of questions I faced on the day of my exam. If you are struggling with the PTCB test, I can wholly recommend their course as a way of bridging the gap between what you need to know and what gets tested.
