Good training course and good delivery. Thanks for answering the questions

Tech Data had the course well planned with all the lab resources and contents shared and Joel was so good to answer all our questions

This is a great way of learning remotely, highly recommended for those that enjoy online learning

Outstanding job on the facilitator of this course (Ruben) and great information taught throughout the duration!

Ruben did a fantastic job facilitating this course! The only downfall is trying to cram all this information into 2 days! Incredibly overwhelming...

Very informative and lots of information covered. Overall great information to use on the job.
