    I was sceptical at first whether to enrol with Microtek Learning or not, however, I am glad that I did- I got everything that was promised (maybe more). The trainer was very patient and knowledgeable and with his effort and mine, I was able to clear the exam with ease! Keep up the good work everyone.

    I was recommended the ITIL 4 Foundation course by an IT professional who had completed the same course at Microtek Learning. The training gave me a thorough understanding of service management that I felt I could take back to my job as an IT Project Management and apply it to improve the value of products and services.
