Pam is the Founder and Director of Edgar's Mission and has studied the Animal Anatomy and Physiology course with us. This is what she had to say:

"As the Founder and Director of not for profit animal sanctuary Edgar’s Mission it is paramount that the animals in our care receive the very best we can provide, both in terms of husbandry and facilities. To this end I am forever seeking to learn more, however I have little to no time to attend colleges or universities to further my knowledge. Scouring the internet, I was beyond delighted to find ACS Distance Education who offer a variety of self-paced courses covering a vast array of subjects related to farm animals. After searching through and highlighting courses of interest I settled upon the Animal Anatomy and Physiology course, which is just so interesting and greatly enables me to better understand and assist animals, and I am shortly to complete a Poultry course. Our farm manager has recently undertaken a course on pasture management with ACS Distance Education too. Assignments are quickly marked and returned along with constructive and helpful comments, which really complements the learning experience. My next challenge is to decide which course to undertake, there are just so many to choose from. "
