I gained a much better understanding of Administration; the course removed the hiccups and replaced them with new found confidence. The teachers were very courteous and interested in the students. I will recommend to my colleagues.
The course admin was very efficient and informative. The premises are nice. It is great that I can take 3 months to do the Microsoft Office Training. It's also good to know that i can access support with job hunting and ask questions, if I need.
