“This course gave me exactly what I needed, which was an overview of the use of Network Analyst. The course materials also provide a useful reference source for when I get back in the office and try to apply what I’ve learned” – Chris Maple – DIO

“The course was organised and the pace was good, I feel more confident about using the Network Analyst at work now.” – Adeyinka Kilani – DIO
