City Desktop Training was wonderful. The staff worked with me to help make the course happen even though others postponed at the last minute. My instructor was very patient and answered all of my questions and made sure I knew the information I needed to. Students are also looked after with things like tea and coffee and it’s a great central city location. I would definitely recommend the company to others, and I would love to work with them again.
