Student Success Stories

Pitman Training was a game-changer for me. I wanted to level up with Microsoft programs and have a better understanding of the legal secretary role. The courses were easy to follow, and I got quick results. Pitman Training’s flexible learning approach was a huge plus, and having a Learning Coach was awesome; they gave me great advice! Now, I’ve got top-notch Microsoft and admin skills for my CV, boosting my career confidence. Pitman Training? I’d recommend it in a heartbeat!
