Hear from the Netcom Training Alumni

"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. "

"Very kind, extended with a bonus FRI session, and 2 extra days before the SY0-701 mock and in the wake of Post Office's very serious and fatal IT scandal (as per The Guardian - MP criticises ‘fatal flaw’ in government’s oversight of Post Office IT scandal, 06/02/2024). All good tutors. "

"To be able to study online from home made the experience great. Netcom Training deserve credit for the way they have set up the course to meet the needs of the students. The admin team have been very helpful from the beginning. The structure of the course, the study material, student resources and delivery of the lessons by the teacher Mr. Doug Brooks have been on point, very interesting, useful, and educational. Mr. Doug Brooks deserves immense credit for teaching and delivering the subject in a professional way, his knowledge of the subject is huge.
