What people say about our training

I can't believe how much I learned in such a short period of time. After the first day I was able to write my first report from my database with ease. This is truly one of the best classes I've taken.
Amy Hefner
Columbia Valley Community Health
Great course led by a very knowledgeable instructor. I have a comfort level with Crystal Reports that I did not believe was possible. Great job!
Bailey Berlin
Pediatria Healthcare
Very informative refresher course for me. The instructor really knows his stuff and went out of his way to answer our questions.
John Yanzer
Zero Zone Inc.
The instructor was great -- flexible to our needs and foibles. Used time well, managing our hiccups. Covered a great deal for an introductory class. She was excellent at helping us manage our stress levels over this new learning which was complicated (at best) for all 3 of us in the class.
