It was a fantastic journey through the entire course. With my background as a biochemist, I never thought about working in customer support and service could be so interesting. Honestly, the skills I learned from this course was way more than I expected from the beginning. The art of communication truly inspired me to practice more with my daily conversations in my workplace. I believe the professional communication skills, multitasking skills and interpersonal soft skills I learned from this course will benefit my career in the long run. Thanks for the great course.

This was a solid course that covered a lot of essential information for any customer service specialist. While i would not call this comprehensive by any means, it does hit the core concepts. I would recommend it for people new to customer service but should be very easy if you already have experience.
