Awesome instructor with in-depth knowledge and the ability to present in a meaningful & understandable way. This course will provide a solid foundation within DataStage that can be used immediately. I highly recommend this course.

Very clean, great cafeteria and well sorted, very kind staff. The bathrooms have to be expanded as they might get crowded sometimes

Very thorough and well-presented class. Pace of the class was perfect and labs offered great opportunity to practice material.

I received a link for automated set up. I do not like automated set up links since there's always a chance of compromise.

Really nice and helpful staff! Office has well thought out interior design and plenty of snacks and drinks and coffee.
