It is very good and very simple instructions. almost to much hand holding.

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

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

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth

Very good material, the instructor was clear explaining the topics, and the labs were easy to follow it.
