I enrolled in NIET while starting a new life in Tasmania. I received lots of help from the administration and teachers. I used to struggle a lot to do my assignments. Dimpy has helped me with one-on-one consultations after classes. Classes were very engaging and interactive. Overall, I had an amazing experience with NIET.

She is not only a trainer, but also a motivational speaker, who knows how to boost the confidence in her students. I am thankful to the whole NIET STAFF for their support and services during the course.
