  1. You'll be CCAH trained in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be CCAH trained in record time
  2. Our CCAH course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass CCAH first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
