Paul Jensen was a great instructor. He is very knowledgeable on the subject of vmware 6.7 and because he teaches other classes like veeam, he can provide examples of how different subjects work together with real life examples that people are familiar with.

Vince was a great instructor. Would attend another one of his classes.

Brain Perrys Radio Voice made the class. The knowledge Brian delivers to the class was of doing and teaching. All questions by students had very clear and detailed answers. This Instructor knows his Stuff. Thanks Brain!

Vince provided lots of real world examples of how the course content and lab applies to it and made things a lot more relatable. Having these examples really helps with retention of information.

The instructor was knowledgeable on to topics discussed. He presented the topics clearly pointing out known user pitfalls and tips as we moved from topic to topic. Excellent all around pacing and delivery.
