5.0 stars I found this training class online and signed up due to course description. I was fortunate enough to be put in a one on one class and I am pleased to say that it went beyond what I was expecting. The class went more into what I use the program. I also learned extras related to the program which was pretty cool. The instructor was pretty knowledgeable and awesome!Audrey Borner
