Just finished up a course taught by Sean Mohseni. Excellent instructor. If you can find a course he's teaching, its well worth it.

Very educational and informative. Instructor was very Interactive so I had great learning. Presentation is very good. Venue is very convenient.

Very clean, great cafeteria and well sorted, very kind staff. The bathrooms have to be expanded as they might get crowded sometimes

Course Material was well presented and labs were interesting and hand on experience

The software installation instructions needs to be more clear. We spent a lot time on installing and setting up the environment.
