Certstaffix® Class Reviews

Student Average:
4.74 out of 5 from 29 students

4.88 out of 5

Steve Goldberg was excellent. Clearly very knowledgeable in the Visio program and had an upbeat and lighthearted attitude throughout the class. He provided clear answers to my various questions and seemed more than willing to engage with students. I learned a lot and he included many tips and tricks that werent listed in the book. This was certainly worth while.
