Customer Reviews

I completed the Business Analysis Practice online course with AssistKD and was very happy with both the course itself and the outstanding customer service I received. 

The course material was put together in such a clear, easy to digest and interactive and enjoyable manner. I was concerned that in doing an online course the support would suffer because you are not physically in front of team members. However, every member of AssistKD that I spoke to was welcoming, genuinely wanted to help, went the extra mile to facilitate my needs and was impressively quick to respond. I went into the exam feeling confident and successfully passed. I would highly recommend this training provider and I’m looking forward to completing my next module with them. - Lorna Bradley
