Le’Ron enrolled for this course, in which students select four modules from five, in August 2010 and completed all of them, with a distinction in each, by November 2011. He is the first student to achieve such an excellent result in this course, which provides an entry route to the Diploma in Commercial Management.

Le’Ron, who is 29, lives and works in the beautiful island of New Providence, Bahamas. He is an Assistant Quantity Surveyor with Bahamas Hot Mix Co. and was sponsored by his company. He recounts that a professor once told him that a person who does not pay attention in class spends the rest of his live on the roadside counting utility poles while others pass by. Many years later, not only does he happen to be counting utility poles but he has also become a proud and active project team member responsible for drafting and measuring civil works. In addition, he assists in analysis, tracking and management of major infrastructure and road projects.

Le’Ron regards education is the key for betterment in modern times and that undertaking the Certificate in Commercial Management course has afforded him that opportunity.
