Excellent training, tailored to the participants, delivered in the comfort of my own home...well done.
Andrew Wharton
Optimal Performance Associates
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.
Yumi Schade
IndexedMarketing
The goal was to improve my current SQL skills and apply them in PL/SQL to comprehend and execute PL/SQL code, and I feel that was met and surpassed in these 4 days.
Ricardo Grande
Florida Gulf Coast University
The trainer is an extremely competent and thorough instructor who takes time to explain concepts in detail as well as provide real world implementation advice. I highly recommend his courses in Google Analytics for those who are looking to get up and running quickly and efficiently.
