NTCA gave me the essential, practical information without wasting my time with irrelevant content. As well, the enrolment process was easy and convenient. It took a couple of weeks to discipline myself to put the time in this challenging course but assignment feedback was very fast and any questions I had along the way were answered within the day. Check them out – there are lots of courses to choose from at NTCA. I am very glad I did.
