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!
this is a great class, with great content and mentor
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.
Excellent information presented by an experienced practitioner and an excellent presenter.
Robin Beck provided an excellent training: he was very knowledgeable and held a very comprehensive two day training session!
Class was excellent, and the Instructor was even better! Robin Beck is the best!
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.
