“Great course delivered by an outstanding facilitator. I would recommend this for everybody joining Vodacom.”

“The training was extremely informative, with a great balance of technical and relevant examples for anyone to understand. This training will be greatly beneficial provided a greater focus is also included on the Fixed “intelligent networks”, network architecture & the different business models between Mobile & Fixed Services. This in my opinion will facilitate the transition in Vodacom to a more and truly converged telecom provider. This will allow me to better follow the business discussions with the product, & technical services development teams.”
