      "I never leave reviews but i am honestly so impressed. class was fun and engaging and the presenter katie was really great and knowledgeable. ended up finishing early at about 1:30pm and got my RSA cert at 4:30pm even though i was expecting it in a day or two! The content was great and well displayed in a booklet and on a powerpoint presentation and katie explained everything really well. would recommend to anyone wanting to get their RSA"
