WHAT STUDENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT HOLLY AND HUGO
I have learned skills for life and feel confident in speaking and helping other people. I'm getting close to my preferred career goal and the courses have helped with my day to day running of my husband's reptile shop. Very easy to navigate and well laid out. Love the personal touch of tips and web chats. Makes you feel that you're passionate not just trying to make money. Which is very refreshing and inviting. Jenni Gray - United Kingdom
I now have a better understanding of animals' behavior and how to manage it. I am hoping that this accreditation will help me get a position taking care of animals. It was very informative and easy to navigate. Also, you are very attentive to alert us and check in with us when there is a delay or an issue with the courses. I don't know any of you, but your emails have made me feel like you are friends. What an awesome educational experience! Debbie Taylor - United States
The format is very good - if I cannot complete the course, it brings me back to where I left off previously. The information is very thorough and I have been able to put some of it into practice already. I enjoyed developing further knowledge of how to interact with animals and learning what to do if they are in distress has been very helpful in my work with local rescues. I liked the self-paced aspect the most and I was able to complete it when I had time to commit to the lessons. Natasha Orslene - United States
The courses gave me a good understanding of why certain animals behave how they do which is very useful since I help run an animal shelter I liked the length that I had to complete the courses and the available options to do so with my busy schedule. I've recommended Holly and Hugo courses to many friends. Jennifer Kanzenbach - United States
I got to learn more about animals psychology, and it gave me more confidence in the knowledge I already had. I liked the neat layout and the well-written lessons. Farrah Porter - United States
Animal Psychology has been something I’ve wanted to study and learn about so given the opportunity to do it at home when I like was fabulous! Holly and Hugo also a lot of support and had clear instructions as well. Annese Wolff - New Zealand
