I like the layout and flow of the course and would highly recommend this to any recently (1-3 years) qualified physio, sports therapist and S&C coach. The course gives you real practical advice and where possible the science/evidence behind this. In the new world this is a great resource of learning which can be done from your home and in your own time without the cost of travelling.
