Great teaching! Complexity simplified!

Best training experience by far, "A" rating end to end from the material, the way it was delivered, the trainer was amazing, a true expert and professional.

Outstanding instructor, fantastic venue, rock-solid lab with great exercises! All-around top-notch training experience - good job, everyone.

The instructor was excellent. Field experience showed and real-world example and problems are most useful.

One of the best courses I've taken.

The troubleshooting sessions were awesome.
