Concise and good to follow along. Although it is a lot to take in under a short period of time.

The training was good but needed the basic skills of maximo before getting deep in the configuration of it.

The class was good, but at times the pace did seem a bit fast to actually try to remember some of the information.

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

The class was very vast paced however the teacher was very good at checking in on us while giving us time to complete the labs.
