    "I have done this course for, at least, the last 3 revisions and this by far is the best. I train this course frequently and I found it educational, thorough, effective, and challenging." – Ruben L.

    "This course is extremely organized and well built. It captures attention quite well. The voice-over of the text helped maintain focus as well as ensure details were remembered. Test questions were relevant and actually discussed quite clearly. Quite a few tests following info modules don't do that well. And the overall presentation was interesting and appealing. Legitimately, the 7 hours it took to complete this training were actually pretty enjoyable. And that's not even in a relative point of view but rather an objective one." – Tyrel J.
