    I have been working as a cleaner in an operating theatre for at least one year and a half. For sure that place has the best experience ever💯. I was motivated and I will be joining a certificate course very soon. At least I have basic knowledge on how things run in such department. Soon I might join your institution.

      Hi, that’s good to hear. Some of our TT students actually joined the program for the same exact reasons. They have a different kind of passion for the course. You’re welcome too when ready.
