Michael's delivery is awesome. He took the time / made the effort to actually give live demo's and white board visual explanations. This is so valuable in teaching as his demostrations held closely to the learning material and made the material easier to understand. Along with this it prompted classroom interaction to further drill down into the lesson material which Michael is very knowledgeable.

Kelwin is an excellent instructor, he gives more than what the course book offers, he is clear, concise, has a witty sense of humour to a topic that is dry. I would definitely take a course of he is teaching again with him.

This is perfect for anyone starting in Red Hat. Some things were easy to learn and some were challenging. It was a good combination.

A great information include Linux history and from basic commands to the detail informations.

Kelwin is awesome. He knows the course material so well and is able to bring in real life examples and is able to follow the textbook, yet can move away from the text book and continue teaching. Kelwin speaks well, great volume, great tone and speed. You have a fantastic trainer.
