Tommy is clear and concise. Responded and knowledgeable. I wil recommend this to all

Well-executed course. I had to wait for the last minute to register for the course because of my org – their staff contacted me to ensure that I had a webcam and headset because they wouldn't be able to send me that in time for the start of class the next morning. They overnighted the webcam and headset and it arrived in the afternoon. It was not necessary but very much appreciated! The course was great and the instructor was a pro!

I had no problems signing up for and completing the course. The introduction was clear and helpful to get the course going. The course itself was excellent and very helpful.

Study material provided is very helpful and covers hands-on labs in addition to theory. Instructor was very knowledgeable and very helpful in accommodating the participants requests/questions.

Class was very informative, although one lab didnt but will try again later
