  1. Dear Sir/Madam,
    Good Day.
    Hope you are good and feeling well.
    Dear i want to register for designing course. Did you have any branch in peshawar because i am living and doing job in Peshawar city.

    • Hello Husnain
      Thanks for your message
      Yes we are providing online training also for those students who are not able to come to institute. You can take participation in course through TeamViewer software. Through this software, you can watch our engineers and communicate them also easily. If you have any more question, feel free to contact us.
