This is my second class with this Tech Data ExitCertified Personnel. I learned so much in BigFix Foundations and BigFix Inventory. Very well organized training instructors and well organized course contents and labs. I am glad I have attended.

The lady at the front really nice. Everthing was always stocked up: Helpful

The course was very thorough and the instructor ensured that all the students were on the same page.
