SmartsCoach goes International ...

 Salam Smarts!!

SmartsCoach mengorak langkah setapak lagi ke peringkat antarabangsa dengan berpeluang melatih warga Sudan di Khartoum.

Kursus Self Defense mula dirancang diminit-minit akhir dengan bantuan warga Sudan, Mr. Ayman Adam Ballouh mendapat sambutan agak menggalakkan.

Dengan warga Sudan yang agak tinggi lampai dan kudrat yang kuat agak mencabar juga dalam memberi tunjuk ajar selain dari bahasa yang menjadi faktor utama.
Walaupun pada mulanya agak kaku dan kurang meyakinkan namun setelah ditunjukkan teknik-teknik tanpa menggunakan kudrat yang kuat tetapi mampu menumbangkan seorang yang bersaiz besar, peserta-peserta mula tertarik. Yang pasti warga Sudan agak kasar dalam 'gurauan' yang memaksa SirNoordin menggunakan 'gurauan' sebegitu juga.
Setelah hampir 3 jam berlatih tanpa rehat (depa ni tak reti rehat ..syok agaknya!) berakhirlah latihan ini dan mula nampak rasa hormat mereka. Yang pasti malam ini ada yang berurut tangan dan antaranya SirNoordin sendiri ... (masuk 4 jam ..boleh patah tangan ni... depa tak reti gurau pelan-pelan).

Rasa puas tak terhingga kerana dapat berkongsi ilmu bersama warga Sudan ini disamping menjawap soalan ini ... "When would be your next course?" Insyallah ...I will be back with my SmartsCoach team.

Wassalam...

Testimonial from Philippines

This testimonial from Dominic Anthony N. Tan, Philippines


Subject: Feedback on ITIL v3 Foundations Training


The training which I have had the opportunity to attend was great learning experience for me. The instructor/trainer, Noordin Khalid, brought valuable insight from his years of experience working in various industries. His tips and examples helped me understand ITIL from a practical, real-world point of view which greatly supplemented the slides and the training material. The discussions were very informative and questions raised were answered and explained clearly.

I did not think 2.5 days was enough to learn content from over 400 pages. I was surprised that at the end of 3 days, I really did learn a lot. I find the method of instruction very engaging. Open discussion and teaching ITIL from real experience was definitely an added value to the course. The training did not end up to be a memorization marathon which we needed to beat into our heads before taking the exam. Instead, I simply read the manual and found it easier to understand because of how the trainer presented the material.

ITIL isn't about memorizing terminology and jargon. It was about understanding the concepts which make it an international standard and taking those concepts being able to see it from a practical standpoint.

Being able to apply what I've learned was always my goal. I was very fortunate to have learned under Noordin Khalid and have a very informative and well-structured knowledge supplement in form of Quint's ITIL training manual.

If given the chance to train under Noordin Khalid in future advanced classes, I would definitely take the opportunity.

Thank you!
