The instructor was very good but there were a few technical problems form cognizant's end that made things difficult from time to time.

Great Class that will help as the state moves forward with the Cloud solution.

I can only say Thank You for persisting - following up and getting me into this class. Well spent 20-25 hours

Everything went well. Enrollment process was easy and I always felt welcomed throughout the whole experience.

Good job coping with the "new" training, of having video learning in a group setting.
