Damon Clark

Knowledgeable instructor who used tools other than just the database tool and WebEx (such as the whiteboard) that appeal to the right side of my brain. The graphic representation of tables via drawing with colors provided me with an easier learning experience and a more complete way to remember dry material.

Great training class, focused on one-on-one education with hands on training.
