"I did a great ‘SIMS for beginners’ course. It was easy to set up and navigate and now I feel more confident in the use of SIMS... I think it’s been really good. I’ve used SIMS before briefly over 5 years ago so it’s been great to get my confidence back up on it when discussing it in interviews and saying I can use it."
