This course was very informative and i loved that it could be done at my own pace and not have deadlines to reach.

Even my dog loved the benefits and being my practice dummy!

Nicky Corbett

The course was easy to find on the website, and plenty of information regarding course modules, outcomes and any frequently asked questions. There is plenty of choices for a range of courses, which made it harder for me to decide what course I wanted to pursue! The price of the courses are reasonable and doing it in your own time while in employment is a plus for myself. Trying to find time while in full time work is hard in itself, but having a good provider online it has opened the door for me to learn new things and expand my knowledge. I would definitely recommend to anyone who would want to learn online.

Sophie Mangano

I’m a property investor and I have an interest in property generally. I wanted to do this course to broaden my knowledge of property but also make sure I understand my rights as a buyer of property. This is a nice introduction to the profession of Estate Agency but also negotiation and building networks. It includes material on both residential and commercial property, and also property maintenance. It touches upon the Estate Agents Act 1979 which is very important. My next step will be to review the act. It is a very broad course and is a good place to start.

Chris Pinnock

Have purchased an online training course for an excellent price and I am very happy with the modules, presentation and interesting details contained in the course.

Andrea Berta

I have just completed the Level 3 Customer Services Diploma course. This course covers all aspects of what exactly customer service is and how somebody could be an excellent costumer representative.

Although I have 10 years work experience, I should admit that I found it quite interesting. This course is comprehensive and any professional can add some useful knowledge. It offers some essential tips for all who want to succeed in the customer service role.

The modules are well organised and understandable, so anybody can easily become familiar with the terminology. I do propose to anybody to attend this course.

Georgia Sideri

Clear and informative content, excellently delivered for students of all levels to easily undertake.

This course gave me a great level of understanding to confidently take on even further payroll related education. It filled in the gaps where my knowledge was not so strong, which I have now confidently applied to my day to day job.

A boost on my CV which I feel will make me more attractive to future employers. Overall excellent and highly recommended!
