Joel did an outstanding job. Excellent presentation and knowledge. I found the training approach to be exceptional. I like the use of Notebooks as opposed to Slides. The labs went smoothly and that was a good thing.

The instructor was excellent (10/10); really experienced, patient and always made sure to follow-up on questions. Could not have asked for a better instructor

Trainer was very helpful and made sure to answer all the queries.

Labs were super helpful. Instructor was very informative even while going over the lab to ensure all aspects were understood.
