The course and labs were well organized and performed flawlessly. They made sure that all the information was timely relayed to the students.

Friendly, easy to use interface. Was very helpful for labs and following along with class material.

Craig Cory was well versed in the material presented. All classes began on time and the breaks were very timely. A lot of material to cover however sufficient time was given for the hands on labs.

Great training provided. One suggestion is mail out printed copy of course material and exercises to participants.

The course presentation and the material that accompanies the course were both very good. I learned many new important topics that can possibly be applied at my place of work.
