What Our Customers Say

I studied Sage 50 Accounts Levels 2 & 3 and Sage Payroll Level 1. Even though the last classes had to be held online, NILC were able to allow me to access the Sage program at home to complete the courses. Julie was absolutely amazing and clearly explained each step of the course. The help and support I received was brilliant! Thank you so much.

Rachel Hancocks

From the very start when I was just enquiring about the Sage course Karim was very helpful and his replies were prompt. Any questions asked were answered by return email. He helped by showing several course packages and I chose Sage 50 accounts level 1, 2 & 3. Sage 50 payroll level 1, 2 & 3. The training was excellently given by Julie, who was nurturing and an expert on all things Sage. Julie is friendly and approachable and is patient. I felt really comfortable asking questions about things I was unsure of. I would recommend NILC. My experience has been 5 star.

I took the Sage 50 Payroll course & found the content both engaging & relevant. Julie the trainer was excellent in her delivery. Julie also made time to go over additional content that I was interested in learning, expanding my reporting knowledge to the next level.
I would 100% recommend both NILC & Julie to anybody looking for a higher level knowledge of Sage.
