Our Online Courses

Start with the geriatrics course, which is also known as the caregiving course. This is a highly sought-after qualification. Next, it is recommended that you complete the Alzheimer’s and dementia courses. The Alzheimer’s/dementia courses are recognised by the International Alzheimer’s Association.

It is highly recommended that you take the dementia and Alzheimer’s courses. This is because, every 4 seconds, someone somewhere in the world is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s/dementia. Therefore, there is also an exceptionally high demand for this qualification.

Please take note that we are going online internationally soon! This means that all of our courses and content, both theory and practicals, will be available to anyone from ANYWHERE in the world without the need to attend classes at the college.

Currently, you may enrol for any of the courses that we offer and study the theory online. The online courses in their current form do not include practicals. However, this will soon be changing! We are enhancing and updating the online courses and will soon be offering practical demonstrations of the concepts online! This means that in just a few months from now, you will be able to study both the theory and the practical demonstrations from the comfort of your home or office and still reap all the benefits of class attendance.
