I am very satisfied with the course and teacher(Bill), and with the given option I will play with labs more after the class is over. Thank you

Overall very good and informative course. Definitely aimed for beginners which applied to me and the course kept me engaged while gaining hands-on experience over the 3 days

The course had a balanced structure with labs that helped supplement the learning material and it was incredibly beginner friendly.

Content is consistent with the class you enroll in. Instructor was thorough and engaging.

I attended a remote learning class from my home and was completely satisfied with the class, instructor, response time, content and lab exercises.
