What Our Alumni Say


What Our Alumnis Say

Andrew W. Mungube

CS/Public administration and Governance

“You might look at any online program and have your heaviest doubt about joining one but considering the amount of time, each one of us lost during the covid 19 pandemic we have to make up for that lost time one way or another. According to me online programs came to our rescue in the fight to recover that lost time.

I took the program when I was preparing to sit for sections 3 and 4 and I can confirm that it is not that easy as we already had our minds against it but it could be easier than that, so I thought. Having six papers to prepare for and not being in physical classes was something I had to get over it and focus on to pass them anyway. It was until I had my full concentration that the unexpected happened, I came to learn more than I had anticipated besides wanting to pass those exams I also learned about the global trends that were immerging around that time among them being networking virtually. To make it even more impressive it was through this program that I met with my employer.

I am grateful for this college for enabling me to attain my certification and further mold me into the person I am today professionally and because of that, I’m looking forward to further growing and promoting Public Administration and governance to be more recognized than it is today.”

“Joining Traction to further my studies was the best decision I ever made.  I undertook the Certified Secretaries Professional Course in the academic year 2021/2022.  I learnt of Traction through a partnership program that they had with the Nairobi Branch -Law Society of Kenya. At the time, I was looking to enhance my career as a Governance expert by taking up a professional course in Governance and Certified Secretarial Practice.

I was quickly able to get information on the course requirements and fee structure through the school’s website and a follow up phone call from the school administrator.

Studying at Traction has been an amazing experience as I got to interact and study alongside several students from diverse professional backgrounds. The classes were very convenient during the pandemic time as all were held virtually. The timings of the classes being held in the evenings also accommodated those of us who are in full time employment. At the beginning of every semester, we got reading materials and revision past papers in good time. The lecturers were able to cover the syllabus in good time and go an extra mile in preparing make up classes in instances where a class was missed or if there was need for further sessions for better understanding of a topic. The lecturers would also honor requests for extra lessons requested by the students and would also make up time for one-on-one coaching and revision. Most of our lecturers being active practitioners in the Governance and CS fields was an added advantage for us as we were able to get practical experience in relation to the course work being taught in theory and in practice. With early completion of the syllabus, the lecturers were able to focus on exam preparations through revision classes. Am happy to state that with all this effort I was able to pass all my examinations in one sitting!

The course fee is very affordable and Advocates under the Nairobi Branch get to enjoy discounted prices. The school is also flexible and allows for fee payment in bits. The school administration also came in handy and handled any troubles or queries that the students experience with exam registration matters at KASNEB.

The anonymous lecturer and course feedback sessions also enabled us to give reviews and recommendations that the school took in to better our learning. The school was also able to organize various virtual stakeholder talks and engagements with those already in the industry such as Certified Secretaries, KASNEB facilitators who spoke to us on the new syllabus changes, ICS and RCPSB who spoke on registration requirements for CS.

I believe that my time at Traction has prepared me adequately to join the Certified Secretaries field with vigor. I am looking forward to coming back for the newly introduced Diploma in Corporate Governance.

Thank you, team Traction! “

“I heard of Traction School of Governance from my colleague who told me that she had seen the institution’s name advertised by the Law Society of Kenya. I was looking for a school to take my Certified Secretary classes. I contacted them and decided to join their institution. My experience at Traction School of Governance has been very positive in the following ways.

1. It is flexible enough to accommodate people who are working. They offer classes that are conveniently timed to accommodate working class students.

2. Traction also offers online classes making it easy and convenient to take your classes from any location

3. As many of my classmates are in the same legal profession that I also happen to be in, I find that I also learn from my colleagues and lecturers on ways to improve in my legal practice

4. I really think the administration is great. My experience with them –especially one Anastacia and Emmanuel- has been a very positive experience. They are very responsive to my needs and queries and go the extra mile to assist you. Needless to say, this makes you feel that you chose the right place to take your studies

5. From the units that I have taken so far, the course content was very relevant to the exams that are taken from KASNEB making it easier to pass the exam.

6. The charges levied towards students for the classes is also reasonable and is not a hindrance for anyone who wants take the courses and they also give a 10% discount on fees for Law Society of Kenya members which is bonus for me.

7. They allow me to use their facilities when I need to. As I work in the Central Business District where the school is located, I find that I need a place to read after work hours. The administration is always willing to let me study from their premises when I need to.

All in all, my experience has been positive in the institution. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place to study and is looking for flexibility and a schedule that is very accommodative.”

“I am a CS student at Traction School of Governance. Traction has assisted me to study for my Kasneb Exams. I am so impressed by the level of support and structure the online classes and the lecturers have offered me. The online classes have made it easy to manage alongside other commitments (job, school, life). The Lecturers and admins are all extremely responsive to student questions and needs. 

In addition, a variety of learning resources, such as the e-Learning materials and notes, are also widely available and accessible to students. These resources are successful in assisting the students in overcoming academic challenges.

I would like to recommend Traction to any student who would like to study CS exams.”

“Enrolling at Traction for further studies was a game-changer. I joined the Certified Secretaries Professional Course in the academic year 2022/2023, discovering Traction through their partnership with the Nairobi Branch – Law Society of Kenya. The goal was to advance my career as a Corporate Governance expert.

Navigating course details and fees was seamless, thanks to the school’s website and a helpful call from the administrator. Virtual classes, accommodating diverse professionals, and convenient evening timings made learning accessible. Timely distribution of materials and past papers each semester enhanced the learning experience.

Interacting with students from various backgrounds, dedicated lecturers, and practical insights enriched the journey. Affordable fees, discounts for Nairobi Branch Advocates, and flexible payment options made education accessible (this is especially helpful during these tough economic times). Traction efficiently handled exam registrations at KASNEB, addressing student queries. Anonymous feedback sessions through occasional surveys also contributed to a conducive learning environment. 

Beyond the curriculum, Traction organized virtual talks with industry experts, bridging theory and practice. With comprehensive preparation and support, I successfully passed all exams in one attempt and even emerged top student in Governance and Compliance Audit exam of April 2023. I am truly Grateful for Traction’s dedication and I look forward to the next steps in my career. 

Thank you, Team Traction and keep the excellence going!”
