Overall great course with good learning materials, instructor(Kevin Ruse) made the learning experience a breeze and was overall a great instructor

Communications were good and team was available to answer questions at any time.

The training was great and touched on the necessary information for the certification. It is always hard to reserve 4 half days all the way through so there were times when I needed to step away. Otherwise, the instructors, content, and delivery were fantastic.

The material was delivered clearly, but some of the labs were a little too easy and were 100% hand-holding.

Although there seemed to be too many links for the course, everything worked smoothly.
