"Thanks for an excellent week of training. All of us in the room have spent a fair while in the training business, so have run and seen loads of courses - I would rate this right up at the top"


"I am so happy I found KCP's totally online training course for the British Psychological Society's certificates in ability/personality testing. I needed to learn at a distance and Hong Kong to England is certainly that. KCP's staff are truly helpful and patient with all queries. The teaching material is very interesting, easy to comprehend and logically organised. I actually enjoyed doing these courses. I can highly recommend this course to anyone with or without distance learning needs."
