Will I get access to content after I complete a course?

You will get access to the PDF of course books and guides, but access to the recording and slides will depend on the vendor and type of training you receive.

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

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