When does class start/end?

Classes begin promptly at 9:00 am, and typically end at 5:00 pm.

Does the course schedule include a Lunchbreak?

Lunch is normally an hour long and begins at noon. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and juice are available all day in the kitchen. Fruit, muffins and bagels are served each morning.

Great and very intuitive. Better than the traditional hit the wrong button/lose points.

Instructor, Training material & span of the training is neatly planned.

Some Labs are very good but some steps it ask to update but its already updated, but overall its very good training.

Good Course. We covered a lot of material in a short amount of time. This course had useful labs that built upon each other.

Simply great training provider that I can go for updating/acquiring my skill sets.
