Great personnel and facility. I just should have been told i was the only person physically in thr class, and that there was an option to attend the class remotely.

Content is great and useful lab exercise which can be related to tasks performed at work.

Should allow student to download the software of the e-Textbook though out agency can't give the permition to download file out of the firewall.

TX3181/3191 Courses. Really good course, highly recommended for TWS/D users.

Very well organized. All the course documents, presentations, meetings worked well.
