We would like to congratulate Stef, whom recently became a father and successfully completed his Commercial Law Distance Learning Course.

Dear Aili good day,

Your last message noted with thanks and really appreciated.

Please note that I admit that maybe in some areas my research and
going deep through the subject was not so good however please note
that I enjoyed the course very much and I have learned a lot of things
about the commercial law.

I appreciate your assistance on the whole duration of the course and
I will definitely recommend SOUTERS to friends and colleagues.

Please note that one of the main reasons that I might not went so deep into the course was that since August 2011 I am a father and my time for studding has been reduced drastically due to the new member of my family.

Anyway I think with your help we managed to achieve a good result.

Thanks again for everything.

Really appreciated.

Please also advise if I can continue further my course/certificate
(in the future) and to upgrade it through SOUTERS to a more advanced

Best Regards

Stef Kosmos
