SA: Once you obtained your first certificate, what inspired you to complete another 3 courses?
AC: My sense of self-challenge inspired me. If I had been able to get my first certificate, I could also try to get others.
SA: What has your experience been like with our courses?
AC: My experience was great. The courses are clear and well explained, full of extra multimedia material such as videos and podcasts. It was really interesting to take these courses.
SA: What are your career goals?
AC: My main goal for my career is to enrich myself as much as possible with new things that can add value to my person as well as to my professional figure. With Saylor Academy, I realized that all this is possible.
SA: How has what you learned/the skills you obtained through Saylor Academy prepared you to achieve those goals?
AC: This is simple to explain: when I learn new things I feel stronger and more aware of my abilities. All this empowers me with the energy to face my work challenges.
SA: Which course was your favorite and why?
AC: I have two courses to include among my favorites: the first was the one on Bitcoin because it was one of the most interesting things I’ve ever read. I didn’t know there was so much behind Bitcoin. The second was the ‘Advanced English as a Second Language’ course because it was the most difficult so far, and I found this very inspiring.
SA: Would you recommend Saylor Academy to others?
AC: Absolutely! I already told my brother and my best friend to sign up!
