Great value for money!

If you want to pass the exam then this is where you need to go. The trainer ensures that what he is teaching is in small chunks - enough to understand and comprehend. This is how i learn best. I would definitely use this company again.
I did not experience anything negative about this company at all. The price was good, the trainer was great and the location was brilliant....I even passed!
They don't lie when they say that they have a high pass rate - if i can pass then anyone can...trust me! I had a great time with this company.
The Knowledge Academy were professional and approachable and made it all so much fun! Great content, real life examples and encouragement to do better are all part of you.
The training was done professional and time management was paramount during the course. The course documentation and illustration are very explicit for comprehensiveness.
Good preparation and training support; I would use The Knowledge Academy again.
I did find the training course difficult and hard work. But it isn't meant to be easy. However, the trainer was lovely and clearly very into what he was teaching - this was helpful as it gave a little excitement to the course itself.
To be quite honest, i went with this company because they were the cheapest. However, there was nothing cheap about the course itself. The staff were helpful in directing me to the right training centre and were friendly when i had to rearrange my course for personal reasons. I also found the trainer of the course to be a lovely man who was very knowledgeable in his field.
