“It was amazing to be a part of this workshop. RSSP helped me a lot to improve my English and resume. They helped me work on my personal character and skills. I feel grateful to have had this course. They helped me from the start to the end to get employment. They followed up every time with my NNAS license application procedure and they were there every step of the way.”
