I learned a lot of directly usable skills from Tech Data. It will make an immediate impact in our work center.

Informative class with great instructure who was able to walk through the course material, answer all questions, and give great examples.

Didn't know the class was from an outside firm but everything seemed to be well organized.

Ruben was very energetic in presenting the course material which kept our attention. Thanks!

Topics are well organized and the instructor is very knowledgeable. Lab exercises are relevant and help in better understanding of the topics.
