which course is easier to get a job?cardiovascular technology or physiotherapy
In my opinion, taking a physiotherapy course you can get a job easily since you can start your own physiotherapist clinic and you can start earning. However you can get a better salary if you take a cardiovascular technology course if you do that course in a resourced institute.
