    The trainer effort to add easy to understand terminology to explains a topic especially when it comes to technical related methodology, The trainer ensures that trainee are well informed on the critical areas / topics so that I give more focus.

    Happy to see there are practical lab materials. The virtual environment is great. I feel it’s too much detail for a fundamental course. this course is probably suited for the practitioner level. I register for awareness purposes but it seems to be much more than expected.
