More customers from Asia and the Middle East are enrolling with Contented. Last week we welcomed new learners from Hong Kong, Abu Dhabi, India, Singapore. Welcome aboard!

And we liked this recent feedback from Craig Millar, Digital Comms Specialist, Co-operative Bank, UK:

"I enjoyed the writing for the web certificate and found it easy to apply the learnings to my work. I now want all out intranet editors to do this course as it covers all the right topics, in the right level of detail."

Best of luck with the iPad Mini draw!
