“Personally due to matters outside of work and due to a delay in being given access after registering I only managed to complete 49% of the course, but what I did experience was fantastic, a real eye opener and great way to learn about Fintechs. Having almost done half the course I was already on about 5 hours so I would question if its really and 8 hour course or more - but then it may merely have just been me... Loved what I got do just wish my access to the course was longer so I could complete it.”
