    As someone who comes from a background in administration, this was a good course to study. The material was presented well, and I found the content engaging. Sometimes, administrative courses can feel monotonous, but not this one.

    The course gave me extra skills that helped me in the workforce as an administrative officer. The course was easy to follow and very beneficial. I recommend that you learn to discipline yourself at home, otherwise you can be short of time
