Customer Comments

Just Great!

- IBM

This was the best course I've ever taken. The instructor was just GREAT!

- IBM

The lab setups are excellent and allow the class to focus on the training objectives. It was a great way to get hands on experience with Compliance in one day.

- CVS Health

I will recommend this class to my organization as one of the more complete solutions to on boarding new Chef users.

- The MITRE Corporation

I was sad to have the training end! The personalized attention from the instructor was priceless. Chef made sense and I LOVED it! Every question and problem were solved and explained. Truly craft masters of Chef, take this and be ready to be amazed. I'm applying what I learned the next week after the course. Thank you CHEF!

- Trace3

Class was excellent, and the Instructor was even better! Robin Beck is the best!

- CRITEO

I don't usually like online training, but this training was great and Eric is really good, well-organized, and in control. The way he engaged each participants is amazing, and how he troubleshoot issues.

- BlackBerry Limited

This was the best training class I've taken. It was online using Zoom, it was super easy to share code and collaborate. The instructor kept everything going at a perfect pace and his knowledge and expertise on the topic was evident. 22 years of training in my career and this was hands down the best class I've taken. Better than classroom training. Looking forward to more!
