Recent student feedback

5.0 stars The instructor took the time to ask how much of the subject I knew and what were my interests or things I hoped to learn by the time I left the class that way he knew what topics to concentrate on. We had a very small class therefore we were able to customize and personalize it. I liked that very much and feel I walked out knowing a lot more on the subject. Ana Valenzuela

5.0 stars I requested a one-on-one session to meet the specific requirements of a project that I was working on. Jeff provided me with the perfect level of training allowing me to complete my current project, apply what I learned to other projects, and save myself a lot of time and energy!!!Anzanique Luckey
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
