The structure and pacing of the course objects was easy to follow. The instructor also delivered the material in a way that was easier for beginners to digest and the labs helped to enforce presentation material to understand the topics better.

John Hewitt is a very good instructor I would recommend this class just because he is the instructor. If he did not have the answer to a question off the top of his head he made sure to research and provide it by the next class at the latest.

Having never used data stage I feel that because of the depth of the course that I am ready to start using it in the real world.

Lance, the instructor, done an incredible job delivering this material in a way that was engaging and informative.

Excellent instructor. He was able to explain all the questions. And made sure if further explanation is needed.
