The week-long training was an enjoyable and very informative experience which I would highly recommend to anyone who works in the field of eCommerce".

South African Post Office

"The experience I had of the COB Certified E-Business Manager Program was remarkable, and very fulfilling. Being introduced to the world of E-Business was worth the investment.

I recommend this course, as it not only taps into the commerce element, but also on how efficiency can be achieved through automation.", - Portia Matsena, Acting General Manager Commercial, South African Post Office (Part of an Executive Leadership Team trained by our founder on site at The South African Post Office).
