Really enjoyed the class and the instructor. I was worried at first about it being a live online class, but the format was great. I could sit in my office and if something was going wrong the instructor could access our computer and walk us through. GREAT CLASS, GREAT INSTRUCTOR!!! Would definitely recommend.
