Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
Could have used some more breaks. Other than that she was an excellent trainer and was very helpful on helping us with our Sharepoint developement. The trainer conducted the training in our office so that section should be N/A

Donna's knowledge on MS project is amazing! She was very very helpful.

The facility and start time were our fault (terrible, but I can't put that as it should not reflect on the vendor!) - incredibly, they offered to host us for the second course. The instructor (contract employee for GK) was hilarious, incredibly knowledgeable and quickly showed tips and tricks that were previously unknown to the students. It did not fit the original request, but was completely valuable. There were no handouts, but we didn't need them for what we were doing.

The general course content were great and the Instrauctr Inam made understanding it easy

The course maybe could have more hands on training exercises. For example maybe watch a meeting in progress and have the participants take minutes of the video. As a group they would discuss that content would be included in the minutes.

The course was perfect for my needs. I will definately make use of the information I learned. I appreciated the courteous and very helpful communications I had prior to the course as well.

Overall the course is useful however the course outline needs to be more structured in my opinion. The instructor should also be a little bit more knowledgeable in regards to specifics about MS Project as there is a very high level of experience with the software expected of them.

It was GREAT ! Gordon is a good presenter with a lot of experience and knowledge.

We would have liked if the course covered Outlook as well as the other Office programs. In our first 2 online classes, there were problems with the audio and the teacher would sometimes cut out, or fast forward, and she could barely hear us at all so all quesitons had to be typed in the chat.
