Well organized, but the training should have included lab times as well, labs won't be done during breaks.

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

Facilities were very clean, coffee was nice to have, snack selection was refreshing

The course material and the instructor were very good. This course met all my requirements.

Class had good pace, the curriculum appeared to focus on exam prep (which was good), the lab worked very well except for one small instance.
