Facility was well laid out. Well stocked break room & bathroom within close walk. Also, the woman working the front desk/professional support was very helpful and professional, and responsive to our requests.

I would certainly go through ExitCertified again for future trainings.

The Labs shown with in the exit certified portal allowed the student to put their new knowledge into action. There was seemless movement between the virtual classroom to this lab space. Thank you to the architects and developers who made this reality.

The course for Cognos Enterprise Admin was wonderful! Learned a lot and have started applying what was learned. Thanks.

The course is well organized, and I would recommend it. The cadence can be faster.

Very good class. The dev labs could use a little more notation. I would have liked an little more time available to complete labs after-hours and after the class is complete for review.
