Instructor was knowledgeable and made the course fun. He knew how to convey the new material to students in simple and understandable manner. Used terminologies and apologies understood by all students in the v.classroom.

I just completed a three day course in BigFix usage/administration led by Gary Lehnus. Gary was an excellent instructor. ExitCertified made the online class process painless. I can't speak for their other courses as I have not taken them, but the BigFix course is well worth it.
