Course Reviews

  • Digital Marketing and Advertising Course Online

    Digital marketing course 3

    Mostly good: accessible, straightforward to understand, but giving enough detailed info to make you think you are learning. However, sometimes more detail on "how to do it" rather than "what you have to do" would have been good. Also, three enquiries about how to access support materials (as advertised) went either unanswsered or unsatisfactorily answered. I still have not received them.
  • Diploma in Office Administration and Receptionist Skills

    I would defiantly recommend this course 5

    The course that I applied for was office administration and reception course. This course by far has given me the best knowledge and understanding, I would defiantly recommend this course to those who are looking into working or building a career in a business environment.
  • Digital Marketing and Advertising Course Online

    Average 3

    Interesting set of videos to help you understand more about digital marketing for beginners. But the module books were below standard to understand, with very little detail about topics covered. The exam was also multiple choice and require very little effort for achieving an Advanced Certificate in Digital Marketing Essentials. .
