Real Stories from

Previous Students

Hats off to CFT International, got my RSA in a day without any dramas or spending heaps of hours working through training modules whilst had a tough time with another company which is into dubious practices, assessments questions were not clear, took almost 1.5 days to get through confusing study material and felt they deliberately fail you to make more money. Didn’t check on reviews for this other company otherwise would have stayed away because of bad reviews.

Priya Jose

I completed the online RSA course through this company. I’d definitely recommend! It was quick and simple to follow, and support team was very responsive.
