Bill has been a great instructor. It was a great learning experience.

Tim Garlick was interactive with the class members and spoke well . Look forward to taking another one of his classes in the future

Bill is a great trainer and he made sure to have this an interactive session. Contents are very good for a beginner and will help to advance further in gathering more insight to GCP.

Bill was fantastic. Very dynamic -- making it much easier to follow along and all day class (had considered a different vendor but that instructor was too dry). Will happily take a class with him again. He also answered my questions in real time.

Very good knowledgeable instructor, course contents and lab work.
