The Course

"The  1-year course consisted of intensive training in shorthand, typing and double-entry bookkeeping as well as general office procedure and etiquette.  The teachers were wonderful.

Because of the good reputation of the school, invitations for interviews were streaming in before the end of the school year."

Margaret Houliston, Netherlands:  25 January 2018
