What people say about our training

The Introduction to Crystal Reports training was helpful in teaching me the tools I needed about the Crystal Report software as well as tips to use when creating reports. I was able to get what I needed out of the course and more. The instructor was knowledgeable and able to answer any questions that I had. I would recommend this to anybody who wants to know the basics of Crystal Reporting.
