Great course, with an amazing instructor Ruben Lopez. Would definitely recommend this course.

Great experience with using the online training with Webcam and Zoom. It is as if I was there in the same classroom but in the comfort of my own setting.

I felt as if I was able to learn and retain a lot within just 3 days of training

Great personnel and facility. I just should have been told i was the only person physically in thr class, and that there was an option to attend the class remotely.

it had already been recommended to me before but due to lack of time and I didn't dare decision, I definitely regret taking classes earlier with TechData.
