"I completed A Cyber Security Course and I have to say all the teachers were amazing and very helpful.If you was unsure I felt like you could always ask and they would take their time to explain and show you different ways of doing things. Amazing Teachers such as Reece, Michelle, Pawan and Andy. They was always available when needed and never minded any students asking further questions or for more clarification or help in lessons or after. "

"Thoroughly enjoyed the training delivered by Gary at Netcom. Websites & Social Media for Entrepreneurs was 12 week course run in the afternoons for 4 days a week and actually helped me in more ways than educational. It gave me a bit more structure to my life when I was feeling depressed. I thought I would wiz through the course due to previously being an IT tutor and being very interested in ICT historically but actually I learnt a lot. The theory was in-depth and punctuated with great relevant examples of well known brands. I would have loved more time and focus on actually creating more websites especially with the CMS but as pointed out it's fairly straight forward. I've developed a lot more confidence due to the course and I wish Netcom more strength to support more people. "
