"I wanted to get my career going in the right direction and knew that I needed to get a recognised qualification. Pitman Training had the answer; I signed up to their Exec PA Diploma and made good progress. The breakthrough was their helping me on preparing my CV and guiding me on job applications - on the Wednesday the CV was finished and circulated - I had a call on the Thursday - an interview Friday morning and was offered the job in the afternoon. A brilliant experience!" - L C
