    Good learning experience

    The training was fantastic and I had a great time learning with this provider. As someone who has used e-learning platforms in the past, this was nothing like my previous experiences. They were experts on the subject, fantastic representatives on-board and overall, the content was excellent. I’ve had a good learning experience.

    Clear and straightforward

    I received clear instructions on not just the course in general, but to also sign up with difficulty. The website was easy to navigate and expanded my knowledge on certified network defender. The training was in-depth but the video series was engaging and light, making it an enjoyable course from start to finish.

I learned the practical and theoretical aspects of this subject matter and had a successful outcome. I would be happy to recommend this course to other learners.
