course material well organized; Some material and labs out of date. instructor was outstanding and able to work around out of date materials.

Very clear and concise course. It was worth attending to me and provided useful information I will use going forward.

Great training provided. One suggestion is mail out printed copy of course material and exercises to participants.

The course had a balanced structure with labs that helped supplement the learning material and it was incredibly beginner friendly.

Everything went well. Enrollment process was easy and I always felt welcomed throughout the whole experience.
