  1. Yet more legislation…..it seems like we were the last group to do PTLLS level 3 and were assured that we would be ok with the new regulations but this has proved not the case.More expense and time…..we only did the course in January but reading some background information PTLLS was out of vogue in September 2013 so why was the course still being run in January 2014?

    • It was first thought that a 12 credit PTLLS was enough for the HSE and Skills for Health guidelines but only in October 2014 that the clarification was said that this is not enough. No qualification will assure that you do not need to do anther course as rules change and they also use these changes to encourage CPD.

  2. I assume a BEd (Honours) is also accepted?!
