IPSR Media sat with Islam to know about his experience at IPSR and Kerala.


“I had been to India before, I faced several problems then. This time around, things were easy. IPSR made it simple.I really liked the training at IPSR and it was way above my expectations. If to rate, I am satisfied over 90%. IPSR is doing a good work and stands outstanding in aspects of training, lab facility and hospitality. Honestly, I didn’t expect such international facilities and I am surprised by the training at IPSR. Food wise, I was very concerned about Halal meat, but you guys made it easy for me explaining every single bit of everything. Thank you.”
