The instructor was very knowledgeable, and was able to explain complicated technologies in a way that was easy to comprehend. I was given everything I needed to learn and complete my course with confidence.

Our instructor displayed exceptional knowledge and expertise with the material he was teaching. He was very patient with the class, who did not have a lot of experience with material being covered.

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.

Excellent instructor. One of the best I have had in over 27 years in the IT business. Genuinely cared about the students understanding the subject material and their success in passing the exam. She taught how to think and reason to pass the test. That is something not found in any text book.
