"I was booked onto the Care and Maintenance of Flexible Endoscopes as, in my capacity of Sterile Services Deputy Manager I prepare for the centralisation of decontamination. The course provided me with enough information to underpin the theory of what I had already learned to help me understand everything from the endoscope functionality to troubleshooting problems. I have begun to embed my learning in to my workplace seeing the whole process with ‘new eyes’. This course is a must for all sterile services staff embarking on the centralisation of decontamination."
Clare Cressey, Deputy Manager : Sterile Services, Harrogate District Hospital
"Utterly shocked at some of the Care & Maintenance photos. Thank you all very much"
Laura Dean, Healthcare Assistant, QEQM, Margate

Caroline Heatley, Operating Department Practioner, BMI Beardwood Hospital
"Really good course, very interesting and great hosts"
Kim Matthews, Healthcare Assistant, QEQM, Margate
"Myself and a colleague attended the Aquilant City & Guilds accredited course and found to our delight it was all relevant to our positions as endoscopy assistants. All aspects were covered in a very good sequential manner. I will certainly take back all positive information from this course and recommend it for all levels of our staff. It was so nice to find a course solely for the benefit of endoscopy staff everywhere and of all levels of competency. We found it very informative and a refresher for skills we take for granted on a daily basis through our working day. It was a very good mix of staples and new information regarding the growth and development within endoscopy today. I hope it goes from strength to strength and I would certainly recommend it to all endoscopy staff, many thanks again."
Paul Williams, Endoscopy Assistant, Prince Charles Hospital
"I enjoyed the Aquilant City & Guilds accredited course very much. The thing that I have taken from this course is I feel more able to troubleshoot if there are problems with the scopes and stacker. Thankyou for an enjoyable and educational two days."
Gill Dickinson, Staff Nurse, Doncaster Royal Infirmary
"An extremely well thought out course. Thank you"
Rowena Stevenson, Clinical Lead, InHealth
"A truly wonderful and informative course, the Aquilant team are knowledgeable, professional but above all friendly. The course has assisted me to understand the complexities of Flexible Endoscopes, how they are made and repaired and more about the actual procedures too. The visit to the technical workshop was so interesting. I would definitely recommend this course."
