Excellent training experience from start to finish. Lab environment was easy accessible and very easy to use/follow.

Communications prior to class were clear but could've been provided earlier.

There were too many emails and it was confusing trying to understand what information we would be getting from which emails.

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