What people say about our training

I was able to go from zero to hero with the training materials, coupled by the instructor's experiences. Every training course should be this easy.

This course was very helpful to our getting started using Apache for our Ellucian Banner 9 migration.

You could easily tell that our instructor knew Google Analytics very well. We didn't ask one question that she didn't have a solution to! I'd overwhelmingly recommend her as a GA instructor!
