  1. Holly

    Amazing course and fab staff! I cannot recommend enough!

  2. Anna

    I recently achieved my Level 3 in Anatomy & Physiology and I couldn’t fault Omni Academy. I’m so unbelievably happy I chose to complete my certificate through them! Rianna was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire process – from pre-enrollment questions to submitting my work, she was always available and always so helpful.
    The course work is challenging but Omni have designed the perfect pack to allow students to really understand the material. I can’t wait to move on my Laser Therapies Level 4 course!

  3. Agija

    Have no words to describe how amazing this academy is, how helpful, how supportive! Every single enquiry was dealt with, Rianna is a brilliant adviser, she explained everything, so I had no issues studying. The course was quite hard itself, but with the best possible support I managed to pass my Anatomy and Physiology exam! Massive thank you to all the Omni team!

  4. Lisa

    I have very recently completed my Anatomy & Physiology exams level 3. I’m so pleased with the amount of support the academy gave me. I sent numerous emails with enquires, rang and spoke to Rianna for guidance when I was struggling. I needed a lot of help and support ( believe me!) I sent my papers in early to be marked and these results came through quickly. I live 4 hours away so the academy helped me arrange a local travel-lodge and worked out the best exam to fit around my travel. If anybody is thinking of doing any of these course here I would very strongly recommend this academy OMNI your fabulous Thank you so much. Xxx

We also send across lots of helpful revision sheets to you, to help you prepare for the exams and ensure that all knowledge is covered.
