It was a great experience. The course was jampacked with excellent information. And when I needed help, Skill-up helped me with technical problems instantly. Fast feedback.
I am currently signed on to several courses with skill up. I have just finished my second one. The courses are informative and good for all types of learners. I recommend them.
The support team was FANTASTIC!!! Very quick to respond and even though I was nervous as I am not good at tests, they made me feel comfortable.
I am very grateful for the support
