They were extremely professional in their approach and very flexible to my specific needs. I would highly recommend IFSI to all those who are looking for a quality training, and to be fully qualified and working within a short amount of time.

I had to study and work at the same time and wanted to have a course that fits in my tight schedule. IFSI was the only institute that listened to my requirements and came up with a custom package for me.

The coaches at IFSI were so helpful and supportive that they felt more like friends by the end of the course! They do a great job of teaching efficiently in a short period of time. There was a good mixture of both theory and practical sessions which meant that no single day was the same, and we got to have a lots of fun in the gym too.
