Matthew Robert Grange, ECDL Diploma in London, Holborn, March 2013
“Having decided to resign from my job, I wanted to study the ECDL to refresh and improve my computing skills and sharpen up my CV, and after looking at several options I chose Pitman Training in Holborn.
As soon as I walked into their clean and industrious-looking Holborn facility I knew I had made a good choice. Encouraged by the efficiency and friendliness on display from day one, I found the course easy to access and learn from, and enjoyable to study, repeating the material until I felt confident enough to try the exams.
The course material was sufficiently well thought out that I rarely had to seek help and worked mostly from home, but was never disappointed when I did need assistance. Passing the course with a 97% average mark, I now work in a challenging administration job that allows me to use and expand on the skills I gained during the course.”
