It was a great course. I learned great and useful techniques to effectively utilize the program.

Good class content, instructor and I am pleased with the delivery platform.

Very good course materials. Maybe could have included a bit more on something like FPO but otherwise very good. Very good instructor and environment.

It was a pretty good general overview. To actually use this stuff, however, I recognize that there would need to be a further dive.

Both course material and instructor demonstrated a sound foundation on Maximo material
