    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NHS.

    It’s 6 weeks training. But the most important is the first two weeks as you will have to exam and one call audit. If I fail the exams you can resist but if you don’t pass then the job has finished . All the answers are in the classroom training
