General Information

This qualification aims to help learners develop a general understanding of different types of medication and their use, as well as knowledge of the procedures for obtaining, storing, administering and disposing of medication.

Distance learning is a great way of learning remotely without being in regular face-to-face contact with a teacher or an assessor. Students have the flexibility to study at home or at work, fitting in their course around other life and work commitments.
