“I’ve dropped out from a couple of online training prior to this course but couldn’t this time. I don’t know exactly how that happened but I can say that there are a lot of features in taking this course that go beyond academics – there are teachers, motivators, guides, and mostly – family. 12 months didn’t feel like a year but the skills I gained could pass for a 3-year working experience in my CV and I’ll confidently defend it with my work. This has been one of my best decisions that have made my full year worthwhile!”
