They are very good and made sure we had all the appropriate materials for class.

Although there seemed to be too many links for the course, everything worked smoothly.

I liked the pace of the course. I like that I have more than instance to use the lab.

Simply great training provider that I can go for updating/acquiring my skill sets.

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth
