Advanced Diploma of Management course in NTCA was very helpful. The trainer did an excellent job meeting my needs and was very flexible in tying the coursework to real-world situations I am currently dealing with. I would recommend this course to students of all experience levels.

– Gina Regifo Palacio,

NTCA’s Advanced Diploma of Management course primed me to think about framing of communications, both internally and externally; it triggered me to be more self-aware in my communications and interactions. The trainer provided opportunities to ask questions about topics that were new and I came away with many new skills that I can apply after the course. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend NTCA to my friends and colleagues.
