I just started studying the Certificate III in Dental Assisting, and I've found the supporting staff amazing! I had an issue with one of the unit assessments, so I used their Live Chat to ask for help. It's what we need from online learning.

I’m currently studying for my Certificate IV in Dental Assisting, and I've received great support and assistance. Every time I've needed help, the Student Support team has been really efficient. I highly recommend this institution!

I just finished the Certificate III and IV in Dental Assisting (Radiography) from Foundation Education. It was a bit hard to finish as I work full time, but thanks to the wonderful Dental Faculty team, I completed all my assignments. Thank you also to the Student Support team, who responded immediately to my online enquiries. It was a great experience.
