    found the course content met their expectations

    “Michael was excellent, his vast experience made the course very engaging and demonstrated the real world application. While this course was delivered via webex, I found it worked very well and didn't detract from the learning - it was very good and I think Michael did a cracking job delivering it like this.”

    - Matt Ball, Consultant, WPM Education

    “Michael was thorough, helpful and very attentive to our queries and need for information. He was very helpful with the course materials too. I couldn't have wanted a better trainer!”

    - Naiya, Information Security Compliance Manager

    “Course delivery was excellent. Instructor method of personal slides followed by using the iLabs was very effective as I already had performed the demos and had better understanding before even using iLabs. If I had just jumped into using the iLabs without the instructor interaction I would have learnt less from the Course. I am very happy that we did not learn this course in parrot fashion. Thanks for the course, Michael.”

    - Aaron Penfold, Full time Student
