The course appeals to multiple learning methods. No matter how you learn, you will be able to absorb all of the information in a concise, simplistic and structured manner.

Max Frost - Arena Manager, NewMeta

The courses were incredibly eye opening and I would recommend anyone at any level in the industry to get certified. Learning that esports can also be about the healthy (both mental and physical) journey a child can pursue is an important piece of knowledge we need to utilize in our field.
