    Plenty of resources

    I’m happy with the extra resources provided along with this course. It was very helpful particularly as some of the modules were quite lengthy and needed some extra reading on the site. The material made it easier to grasp the subject matter more effectively.

    Planning to return

    I had a good experience learning at this institute, and I plan to take more courses with them in the future. This training stuck out for me, because I’ve never quite had a positive experience at an online provider before, and I’ve done a couple of courses with other providers. I never felt they met the standard I required.
