Good experience so far
My experience at SLC has been good so far. I recently signed up for this course, and I’m pleased with my decision.
The course is interactive and hands-on. The training is practical and the even complex sections of the course are broken down to make it easier for the learner.
As someone who works in public relations, I found this course to be very good. I learned so much and hope to apply my knowledge in the workplace. I also hope to apply for a promotion with this qualification.
Amazing learning material
The learning material was outstanding, the video training was engaging, and the support team at SLC was professional. Thanks to them I’m back to learning, which is what I’ve wanted to do for a while.
