Very good material, the instructor was clear explaining the topics, and the labs were easy to follow it.

Excellent facilities, excellent staff.. and the coffee is good too! Thanks for helping to advance my career and the career of my colleagues!

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

Both course material and instructor demonstrated a sound foundation on Maximo material

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