"Great course, very well given"
R.H.. (22/3/2021 (Monday) to 27/3/2021 (Saturday))

"Having very minimal knowledge with Cisco before starting, I now feel confident to take the exam and to get hands-on with Cisco kit. The method of teaching from slides, taking that information and then putting them into simpler, more relatable terms on the whiteboard was a great way to make it all understandable for a first-time user. The instructor did a great job."
Jordan Hornby. (22/3/2021 (Monday) to 27/3/2021 (Saturday))

"A good course, providing solid teaching of subject with a large amount of course material and without making it confusing allowing me to learn the subject matter at hand. No questions were off limits and subjects were covered until they were understood"
Richard Jones, South Derbyshire District Councl. (22/3/2021 (Monday) to 27/3/2021 (Saturday))
