Classromm confortable and enviroment. Instructir knowlegeable of course matarial but need to align to students working in the Canadian Federal Govt. ve US Federal govt.

Great training company. Use them. Worth every penny. Instructors are great, equipment is great, system is great.

Lot of material was covered in 3 days. Would be nice to have some more time to process the lab sections, especially.

Good job coping with the "new" training, of having video learning in a group setting.

The learning format is great and allows one to still keep up with daily work activities.
