“ I chose to train through Funding Connection as l was aware that it is the most reputable organisation for funding services in South Africa.


The course content was excellent with a good balance between theory and practical application, which l think was a great way to learn.


This course has indeed given me a more cemented view both my work and personal life in such a positive way already.  I have been able to employ the skills and tips I learnt, with great results almost immediately”
