What Our Customers Say
Great organisation and delivery of PRINCE2/Visio/Project courses from NILC. They were easy to contact for advice, and very helpful prior and after the training. Excellent professional tutors that helped me achieve good results.
Richard is a great tutor and I throughly recommended him (and NILC) to teach and train you how to use Microsoft Project. Due to Covid, this has been through virtual learning but there are plenty of breaks, and to ask questions as you go along. Karim is also a great help, as he makes sure you have access to the online learning modules and videos. Nothing is too much trouble, and that means a lot - because there are loads of training firms out there that promise a lot, but don't deliver. NILC delivers! I really do recommend this course if you or your organisation is looking for a cost-effective, user friendly training programme.
The Microsoft Project course was really well delivered by our course leader, at a pace that suited me. There was plenty of opportunity to put into practice what we had learned which helped it sink in. I would recommend.
