"Forex Varsity is one of those few companies that live up to their claims. They are truly supportive and go the extra mile to ensure that students are fully conversant with the subject. Never have I experienced a more patient lecturer than Chris. Nothing was too much trouble or too small or too insignificant, exceptional empathy. - Well done! Great company to be associated with."

"All I can say is WoW! I did the course over weekend. Chris is an awesome teacher with the ability to simplify things in a manner one can really understand. I'm really shocked at the amount of information I've absorbed, as I truly believed its impossibe (a weekend is WAY to short) Ive got to admit, I was wrong. Thx for your patience, Chris. People at the office are so friendly. I've attended my first mentorship class and it was way more then what I've expected. Keep up the good work guys. Your an awesome team guys, thx once again."

"Okay so this weekend I attended the course at FX Varsity, and as I was sitting there I realized how attending the course was and will always be one of the greatest decisions I made. Before attending the course Trading seemed like this one complicated process but Chris, The Trainer:) Simplified everything so beautifully. The weekend course was just the tip of the iceberg and I look forward to embarking on my Trading Journey with FX Varsity. I do not see how I could possibly go wrong with FX Varsity at my side."
