    Exactly what I wanted

    This course was exactly what I wanted. I was recommended this course and I couldn’t be happier that I decided to take it. The tutor was experienced and provided detailed information on how to use the computer securely and safely without taking any undue risks. I learned about threats and malicious attacks.
