    Found your site very valuable. However, am outside South Africa( am in Zambia), and with Bsc in Mathematics(was in the industry as ICT Manager),could I still do courses with Talent and which one?

    1. Zunaid Khan says:

      Thank you Chikondi.

      We have many students outside of South Africa, including registrations from Zambia.

      You can do any of the Distance and Online learning courses, E-learning courses or Virtual courses.

      The only difference is that for those courses where we normally courier printed material we would issue you with electronic access to the same material.

      Hope that clears it up.

      Kind regards

    1. Zunaid Khan says:

      Hi Shireen

      You could use either Sage Pastel (Partner or Xpress) or you could use Sage Business Cloud Accounting (formerly Sage One).

      If you are doing it for many companies then Sage Pastel (Partner or Xpress) will be more cost effective.

      Kind regards
