Getting set up for video calling
About this course
Be an expert in Video Calling!
Connecting with your loved ones when you are far away is one of the best feelings in the world. Back in the day, we would be ecstatic just to hear the voice of a loved one in the other line. Now, technology has made that experience even better. Aside from hearing their voice, you can also see them and vice versa. Video calling has helped bring people closer than ever.

Fantastic Online Course
Pet Sitting and Dog Walking Diploma it's a fantastic online course. Very informative, easy to follow sessions with a test facility at the end of each session. You can complete this at your own pace any time of day or night, without any pressure and there is even help if you need it with tutors online. I would highly recommend New Skills Academy to anyone looking to gain a qualification but needs time to complete the course or cannot attend classes.
