Participants in the pilot testing of PRT Online have said of PRT Online:

‘I found this interactive learning tool to be most interesting. I had never done online training to this extent before and found myself keen to sit down and get 'stuck into it'. The quiz was useful to have following each module as it helped me to 'tick off' another section when completed. The package was well presented and kept my interest, well done to the graphics team! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this online learning package to anyone who has an interest in Pulmonary Rehabilitation. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your pilot program.’ Kathryn – Nurse
