I really enjoyed it
I really enjoyed it - great content packed in very good form: videos are short (1-2min per topic) and to the point, so you can easily go back; quizzes let you test your knowledge along the way; nice handouts help to review key items when needed.
Plus the good e-learning support team is extremely responsive.
Quick and responsive customer service.

Best Quality, Content and Price
Great content and platform. The video learning mixed with interactive modules is modern, easy to understand and mobile friendly. Not just a slide deck with voiceover. Hands down the best online training in terms of quality and for the price, an absolute no-brainer.
Excellent so far with a broad selection of courses
Excellent course and support.
The content is really good
The content is really good. The form could certainly be improved- it does not seem to be natively built inside good elearning platform (eg like ITIL V4 training) but rather embedded inside. Which means a large chunk of the screen is taken by controls, menu's etc and less than half of the screen is used for the actual content.
