"My teacher Abbas was great, he made the content easy to understand. If we didn't understand something he gave us more resources and would go through it with us. He went above and beyond making himself available to everyone on the course. He created an easy open environment and didn't force anyone to do anything they didn't want to. Netcom has been a great company to do a course with. I would definitely do another course with them if I could. I highly recommend netcom to anyone looking to do any IT courses."
