Student Testimonials

"This instructor is the BEST!!! He used real life scenarios and experience to deliver or emphasize on certain points/topics. Most of all, he took his time and broke down all the essentials bit-by-bit." Biggest Impact from class: "configuring the controllers and importing the plan into WCS-- these labs had a big impact. I was more than prepared for our deployment...the concepts were fully understood from me taking this course."
- Marvin Jones, Ross University, School of Medicine
