Demilade Olujide of University of Lagos, said “HiiT is a bonus knowledge for me considering the fact that this course is among my courses in the university.” 

As for Anita Deras Chiroma, a Digital Marketer in Lagos State, “at first, I was skeptical about training online, but when I started the Course all my previous fears were allayed. It was as if I was one on one with my instructor, I really enjoyed the class and I will surely recommend my friends to take courses with HiiT,” she said.
