What people say about our training

I had a great experience with my first Webucator class. I was impressed with the pace of the class and the material we covered, and the convenience of being in my own home was very nice.

This was my first time using Webucator. I really liked the personalized attention and that the instructor was able to incorporate my website into the classroom demos. It made it much easier to apply some of the concepts as it relates to how I will be using them.
Tammy Rosen

I've used Dreamweaver before, but never had the background in HTML. This was exactly what I needed -- now I can see the big picture.
