I had an above-average instructor. Not only did he instruct, he mentored us with real-world experience. The knowledge he had of the applications was beyond comprehensible. Outstanding!

- Weston Flowers
Brooke Army Medical Center (CTR)

The instructor was able to not only answer all the questions we had in class and after hours he was able explain the technologies and real world reasons behind using technology A vs B. He adapted the class as needed for all students. I have only had one other instructor at his level in my 15 year career in IT.

- Doug Lloyd - MESA
University of Georgia

The class more than exceeded my expectations. The material was exactly what i needed to get my certifications and more. There was not one question the professor could not answer.

- George Embrey
IMC

Instructor was very knowledgeable in all subjects of the course and tailored his lessons and labs to the student's weaknesses. Very eager to help students in any way he can.

- Scott Masury
MA Army National Guard

He was very knowledgable in the course material and presented it in a very methodical way. The course materials were great and are resources we will use in the future.

- Ralph Polk
Brooke Army Medical Center (CTR)

Instructor was very intelligent and had lots of experience to draw on, outside of the written paterial that made it more interesting. I was very pleased with him.
