FEEDBACK FROM PAST STUDENTS

Martina CushI am delighted to say that, following completion of the CIDESCO compulsory 600 work experience, I remain working locally in a family pharmacy where we offer the latest treatments in microdermabrasion, electrolysis and laser for hair removal and skin rejuvenation. My new position also offers me the opportunity to participate in ongoing training which keeps me up-to-date. I found the course, staff and college to be personal, supportive and challenging
