Strong hands on labs. Frustrating that materials aren't easily accessible for later review or consumption.

The course was well organized, and the labs and class participation helped a lot.

Really nice and helpful staff! Office has well thought out interior design and plenty of snacks and drinks and coffee.

The instructor was very good but there were a few technical problems form cognizant's end that made things difficult from time to time.

Great content and great delivery. Will definitely like to take more classes with Ruben if possible
