Reviews IFC College

Charles Green

I passed the program "Instructor of group programs" and was very satisfied. Many advantages: a serious approach, clear-cut video lectures, valuable methodological materials, access to thematic video tutorials of the college on youtube, all teachers and the curator are always in touch. Despite the heavy workload and the need to devote a lot of time to the learning process, I did not regret for a second that I started training. If you are in doubt whether to act remotely or not, do it without hesitation.

Hello, the feedback about the training is the most positive! I graduated as an Instructor of group programs, the training was at a high level, I would like to express my gratitude to all the Teachers and the college Administration. All the trainers-teachers gave very competent and accessible material, both practical and theoretical, interested and motivated in each of the directions I passed, real professionals in their field. Thank you for the moral and physical support, patience, the desire to share knowledge, a favorable atmosphere in the classroom, kindness and individual approach!
