  1. Hydraulic Principles Diploma Level 4

    Great course – thanks

  2. Easy to learn

    I found the portal easy to navigate and the flexibility that comes with the course is exactly what I needed with my full-time job. This helped me excel in both at the same time. Great job SLC!

  3. Commendable customer service

    I must commend South London on their prompt and courteous customer service. I saw a genuine willingness to respond to my queries. Once the issue was solved they further checked if I required assistance with anything else. Keep up the good work!

  4. Clear instructions

    After booking the course, I received clear instructions on how to proceed and enroll with the course. I gained access to the course almost immediately thereafter, and have since been able to work at my own pace.

  5. Impressive

    I was impressed with the level of service provided by South London. Every person I dealt with was professional and knowledgeable, and my concerns were addressed immediately and solutions were found.

  6. Great learning experience

    My time at SLC was well spent. I had a great time learning about hydraulic principles. I had some background knowledge, but this course was extensive and covered the fundamentals which have helped me apply my skills in my work.

  7. Great course

    I have taken courses with various providers in the past, but without much success. The content of the course was extensive and helped me enhance my knowledge. I’m glad to have found SLC, and will definitely be using them again sometime in the future.
