Good course for beginner, MSP users; and a good refresher for those of us that have used MSP in the past.

The course presentation and the material that accompanies the course were both very good. I learned many new important topics that can possibly be applied at my place of work.

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

The course was very high level but was able to understand all the topics covered.

I attended a remote learning class from my home and was completely satisfied with the class, instructor, response time, content and lab exercises.
