The training was very informative and the way the instructor has taken the course is awesome.

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

Very flexible as I had to reschedule my training class twice due to work/project commitments.

Very good class. Ken (the instructor) is very knowledgeable and has great industry experience as well

I can only say Thank You for persisting - following up and getting me into this class. Well spent 20-25 hours
