Three months into the course, we ask our learners about their experience - to give us an honest 'warts and all' opinion.

To pursue my interest in herbal medicine, with a view to practising as a herbalist.
Very pleased with contents. I liked the pack and associated herbs, etcetera, that were included.
Practice as a herbalist professionally. Treat myself and family in a more 'natural' way
It's interesting and worth doing - and although admittedly not as cheap as compared to others, it's been worthwhile so far.
My tutor Lindsey brings real value to my experience on this course and makes it such a positive and joyful thing to do - she is great, responds so quickly to my assignments and queries and is so informative and helpful.
I enrolled to learn herbal medicine.
Yes. I was following up Blackford Centre herbal medicine course for at least a year before I enrolled.
Initially I thought that it was not that much in detail. But as I am going through it, I am impressed by the depth and the experience of the tutor who is very helpful.
Yes. I did.
I am a doctor. I would like to incorporate herbal medicine in my practice.
Definitely go for it . But be prepared to put in your own effort.
It is a good course.
A bit slower than what I would have expected.
I wanted to further my knowledge.
I spent some time reading the website but I don't think I contacted the help desk.
I thought it was amazing. I was excited to open the box and get started.
I looked at other courses but Blackford Centre offered the best value and support
Learn. I love natural remedies I wanted to have a better knowledge.
The support is gerat. The progress updates are helpful.
Ok. I'm glad that I'm able to progress without being pressured by deadlines. Life is busy and can get in the way, it's ok, there is time.
To learn more about the herbs growing in my allotment and horses fields. To learn about their healing properties.
Very good, it was what I expected. Its clearly set out and easy to work with (paper copy)
Some one day or weekend courses which I will probably do during the summer months. This course got me ahead through the winter.
I'll use the herbal knowledge within my work with animals. Also with family and friends to help them gain more knowledge about looking after and healing their own bodies.
Go for it.
I initially found the manual a bit basic , but soon started using it as a base to carry on researching further into each section before doing the assignments. My tutor has been fantastic, extremely knowledgeable, very enthusiastic and obviously loves her work. She is very positive about my ideas, and takes them further, adding to my knowledge.
I'm finding it fascinating, getting through without problems, and send in assignments as and when I can. It fits around my full time job well and keeps the long winter evenings filled with interest!
I always have been interested in Herbal Medicine and though I am Veterinary Surgeon and trained in orthodox medicine - I would always prefer and advise on herbal medicine to be used in animals when it is possible. As I progress in knowledge - I also would use it as primary healing option for my own health
I have been in touch with Blackford center prior to enrollment with some questions - it was very pleasant and helpful communication
I lied it a lot - I spent hours reading and browsing trough all the materials provided. I was impressed how well everything was organised - from the lessons to the guides and brochures. In the package there was all one may need to gain knowledge and start a new business with confidence.
I do, Health coach could possibly be the next one
At the moment I am happy with my current profession. Courses I take are for personal pleasure and building up new skills. Though my job is very demanding and stressful. If I decide to change it in future - it will be for a Health coach/Herbalist definately
I will show them the materials so they can see themselve how well the program is organised and build.
Though I have done some reading and studying, personal issues have been keeping me away and I have submitted no assessment so far. Regardless- I appreciate the letters from the Blackford center checking if I'm allright and advising me my tutor will help if I struggle with anything.
