“The course was interesting and taught me some valuable lessons. I am happy to say I have completed my course through AOY!”
“I am extremely pleased with my time studying at AOY! The course was very informative.”
“The studies equip to deal decisively with people issues. I have been appointed as acting project manager and there was no mentoring or coaching offered when I accepted the job, so the course assisted me to deal with all those soft issues. I will really encourage others to follow suit. The assistance given by your friendly student advisors is the best. Keep up the good work AOY.”
