Very good couse and again we would like to see more videos on removing FRUs

Brandon was a great instructor. The virtual course materials and labs provided were very informative.

They were very good. They made sure everyone was able to get into the training and got all of the material needed for class.

Some Labs are very good but some steps it ask to update but its already updated, but overall its very good training.

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