I liked being able to set my own goals with the self-directed learning model CPP uses. The employment preparation was also really helpful. It included working on my CV and going over the questions that you would get asked at interviews. This and the practical skills I gained really helped me in getting my job.
I really liked the self-directed learning approach that CPP uses, as it allowed me to complete my studies at my own pace. The instructors were approachable and were really into IT. When I graduated from CPP, I got a great job within 2 weeks.
