Review: We had MCA and Dols training today. I have been in the care profession for 14 years now and have done this training time and time again. I must admit that today has been by far the most enjoyable and informative. I struggle to retain information in a classroom environment but today because it is so inclusive and enjoyable the content has stuck in my mind. Thank you very much.
