    Excellent course

    I have prior experience in this subject matter, but wanted to gain better insight into the theoretical aspect of this topic. Taking this course helped me greatly in this area. It was an excellent choice and a productive training. The outcome was very successful as I was able to complete it well within the given timeframe.

    Fantastic material

    The training was fantastic and so was the content. The material provided was up to standard. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised at the standard maintained by Global Edulink because I didn’t know what to expect from an online provider as someone new to all of this. It was a great learning experience, and I hope to return to take more courses with them.

    Clear instructions

    I received clear instructions on not just the course in general, but also the registration process. The website was easy to navigate and expanded my understanding on certified network defender. While it was in-depth, the training overall was rather enjoyable and engaging, throughout the course.

    Good structure

    The course was structured well. All the sections were broken down and presented in such a way that it was an effective method of learning. I learned more through this training than I have done in a classroom setting on previous occasions.
