      "This is my 2nd time registering to Short Courses Australia to avail a training - this time for RSA. The session was structured and easy to follow. The facilitator did a great job handling both in-class and online attendees and made sure everyone is engaged in the discussions. Real-life examples were provided to give us idea of the concepts in the module. I would definitely go back next time to take another course!"
