    Highly informative

    This course was exactly what I was looking for. This course came recommended and I couldn’t be happier that I decided to take it. The tutor had a lot of expertise and provided detailed information on how to use the computer securely and effectively ensuring that all threats and malicious attacks are kept at bay. I am excited to apply my new skills.

    Enhance my opportunities

    I took this course to gain a recognised certification and expand my current qualifications. While I have some knowledge of how to use the computers, I didn’t know everything or the extent that I wanted to learn which has helped me greatly not just as a personal user but also someone who regularly uses the computer for their work.
