Here is what our trainees think...
‘The looking after your dispensary stock workbook was easy to follow and well laid out. Scientia skills provided me with excellent support, always on the end of the phone and willing to help.’
Qualified LADS, Amer, Preston
‘The training really helped me to feel confident in dealing with stock in the dispensary. I was worried to begin with about going into the dispensary and I was quite overwhelmed with how many different medicines there were and processes for ordering different ones. I now feel confident and may even go on to to do the full dispensing assistant qualification so I can dispense medicines too!’
Qualified LADS, Clair, Birmingham
‘This training was perfect for my member of staff. A great way to up-skill a delivery driver or counter assistant to help put away dispensary stock when we are busy. ’
