  1. Mary Ruth Baloy

    I’m really thankful that this medium has finally been made available. Imagine, a full lecture/seminar on an important topic that we can access anywhere, anytime and finish at our own pace. And with CPD points! This saves my brain from the overload of information that one-day seminars usually give as I can complete it in 30 days.

    The content was comprehensive and has been explained clearly. The lecturer was amazing in making the topics clear and easily understandable. I learned a lot on this topic! I hope there will be more seminars soon!

  2. Mariel Charlene Catarroja

    Since it is an online course, it is very conducive for learning, user friendly and it involves learning that can easily digests.

  3. Teresa Antonia Koykka

    Very timely and simple to understand, thank you for having an online course with CPD for us who are working and are from away from Manila and those areas where they usually conduct training and seminars

    This lecture with CPD points is very helpful especially to the working professionals from provinces, like us. Plus, it is offered at a very affordable price! It provides a clear discussion on very timely topics. I was able to understand the differences between Psychological First Aid and Mental Health First Aid. Looking forward to more topics!


    This online course is very informative and affordable (it offers 8 CPD points for Registered Psychometricians and Psychologists! ) . It provides convenience especially to the working professionals like me. I don’t need to file a leave at work for a 1-2 days seminar plus I can manage my time and can replay/pause the video whenever I experienced some information overload 😅😅😅 It also offers some readings/handouts that you can read before each video and quick exams as a learning check.
