My experience with the online class was very detailed and fun. The 3 days went very fast but were informative.

Webucator went above and beyond my expectations for an online course. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

All related material (book / class files) are very well prepared and the instructor ran an extremely well organized online presentation.

The InfoPath 2010 online training course was well designed and well led by a knowledgeable instructor. I will be looking to Webucator for our next class.
