After 10 years working in the education sector, Shauna Byrne decided that she wanted a new challenge. She soon embarked on Pitman Training’s Medical Administration Diploma to help her get a job in the healthcare sector.

“I’ve always had an interest in the healthcare sector and after working with kids for so long I thought, ‘why not try something new?’. So, I decided to gain some experience and learn new skills in the medical sector. Now I’m working as a medical receptionist and couldn’t be happier!

“The main reason I chose Pitman was because I needed flexibility to train while working in my full-time job. And because Pitman offered such a great selection of courses, it got my attention. I studied at times that suited my lifestyle best, which is why I did most of my learning in the evenings after work and on weekends. The support I received during my time with Pitman was incredible. Everyone was so helpful and prompt at responding whenever I needed help.

“Taking the Medical Administration Diploma has allowed me to gain new skills and given me confidence in my new job as a medical receptionist. I would recommend Pitman to anyone as it really does have something for everyone.”
