Good job coping with the "new" training, of having video learning in a group setting.

This was my second Tech Data course and I have been very satisficed with both of them.

Tech Data helped in gaining more information on the latest version of IIB.
Architectural changes, migration and administration.

Kudos to Manish, for driving session in interactive and productive manner.

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

The instructor is very good and very accommodating and excellent in answering participant's questions.
