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

For the EFT overview module, I really gained a lot, there are some things I was not conversant with, but after the training, I gained more packets.

I must say it was an exceptional experience. This program has truly exceeded my expectations in several ways. First and foremost, the quality of the content and the expertise of the instructors were outstanding. The trainers demonstrated a deep understanding of the subject matter and a genuine passion for teaching. They were patient, approachable, and always willing to clarify doubts and provide additional guidance. The training materials were well-structured, comprehensive, and easy to follow, making the learning process smooth and enjoyable.

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
