Tom was a terrific instructor; I would highly recommend him to prospective students. Concerning the class, it would be more appropriately be 3 days long. There simply wasn't enough time to get to cover all topics in-depth. That said, Tom did a great job of focusing on the important topics and providing a synopsis of the less vital sections.

The environment was very conducive for learning. I could have chosen to take the class from home but by going to a quite environment free of distractions work well for me. The admin for the executive office suites was extremely friendly and helped me with parking in the garage even though I didn't have a pass. Really helped a lot! CertStaffix should provide a temporary parking pass for students otherwise they have to park on the street which isn't a good solution.

I would suggest more opportunities to review course excercises online to ensure there is understanding for students.

Carefully crafted course. Covers relevant material. Deep but not too deep. Has meaningful exercises. The instructor is more of a coach who helps you go through the material. All and all very good impression. Will probably come back for more!
