What do our clients say?

Just wanted to say thanks for the ISTQB agile extension course and I was really happy we had an extra session today, thanks so much for this I think this really has helped me.    It is the first online course I have taken in these challenging times and to my surprise it worked fine. After taking the mock exam I realised I had taken in more than I thought and with that confidence I have booked to take the exam this week.
