I like the interweaving of lessons and labs as it helps solidify the theories.

The troubleshooting section was very useful.

The troubleshooting sessions were awesome.

Learning objectives and the enthusiastic labs are plus. Enjoyed the training.

This was one of the best courses I have taken in 20 years!
