The training was good overall. The facilities and the trainer are good. Place is conducive for learning and very comfortable. The trainer is very friendly and approachable. Improvements in the training hand outs must be done for easy understanding of the students. Hand outs must be aesthitically pleasing with a lot of visuals hopefully. It was a very good experience and I can say that I would like to have more training here in SwissIT. Good job guys. More power and God bless! 🙂

John Rey Lugod

The whole training is really engaging because of the well-knowledgable instructor we have. She is very approachable and communicates well to her students. I also like the pacing. She really gave us ample time to master the skills or tools in photoshop. She is really practical in teaching . She focused to the most important things to remember in the lesson rather than just relying on the PPT.
