    Superb customer support

    While the course itself was very good, let me commend the customer support provided. They were superb and ensured that I stayed on track throughout. Right from the start I was provided guidance on how to proceed, and each time I had a question a representative was always available to provide me with solutions.

    The training was engaging, more than I had expected it to be. In fact, I thought online learning would be rather monotonous, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. It was as interesting as learning in a real classroom setting.
