    Excellent Course

    Course contents are nicely arranged. easy to learn

  2. Dominique Muhumuza

    Good course

    I really enjoyed the course as it allowed me to work at my own pace. It was straight forward and user friendly. The only downside was that some of the videos had parts of the video that had a zoomed effect so you could not see the whole frame. This is frustrating when there’s a definition on the screen and you cannot read all of it.
