Postilion Basic Training focuses on the tasks that operators and administrators are required to carry out regularly. These include monitoring the system, preforming queries, maintenance operations, and first-level troubleshooting.

I have been able to understand the Postilion environment and I wish there were more hands-on practicals involved. It's a tremendous value that Interswitch handles payment and switching services that make payment services innovative and interface-friendly. What I liked most about the program was that the facilitators were knowledgeable and engaging and the others were collaborative, helpful, and enthusiastic. The classes were all provided with a high level of interaction and useful information that I can take and apply to my daily work

The Postilion Training has helped to validate my previous knowledge in Payment Systems and also boost my confidence in working in an FEP environment. The manuals can also serve as a reference for me whenever I encounter any challenge while discharging my duties. It also gave me an opportunity to meet colleagues in other places of work, to interact and share useful knowledge within ourselves. Many thanks to Oluwatoyosi and Adegoke for making the experience an unforgettable one. It can only get better
