I had a lot of knowledge on the course I took but I still learned a few new things which is really nice to come out of a course learning something. Thanks for the informative day. Doreen

The training provider (instructor) rushed through each training element and was not always patient when students didn't follow his fast demonstration. Smart person, but didn't validate that the students actually understood the process. Just interested that we could duplicate his clicks. Sorry, but I am also an instructor and was disappointed.

There were issues with being able to do a number of tasks , and the instructor told us many times that SharePoint 2013 was an inferior product.

I really enjoy the value added by a real hands-on instructor. Nothing beats a working knowledge of the product compared to a text book presentation. The commitment to ensuring the student's needs are met is a top priority and this instructor demonstrated that every day. The pace is excellent and the content extensive, I would and have recommended this course to several other people.

This course was good. I think it could benefit from having the sutdents create a mini catptivate module with all the components of a presentation that they can take with them and use as a template or their own use.

The course was very under the level I needed. I knew how to do everything except for the very first thing they covered in the training so I felt like it was a waste of my time and employers money. The description seemed more advanced than the material was.

Loved it! this was my second. Julie is very knowledgable and helpful. 1St class was downtown. U of A on the other hand...don't think I will take a course there again. over an hr to get there map wasn't very good and took a half and hr and 3 people to direct me to the parking lot where my husband was waiting.

The instructor was fantastic! Would definitely like to take a course from her again. I recently took a course at the Cameron Library location, however, and found this to be easier to access than downtown. Thanks for a great course.

For the amount of useful instruction we received, the course could have been two hours long. While the course did cover everything needed, the rest of the time was taken up with filler (tips on items loosely related to the course, but not needed in order to use the software). The room was freezing and I had to wear my coat for the entire day. There was no parking close-by so I had to take the bus.

For the content covered, the course is way too short (2 days). It is more of a refresher course for students. I recommend that attendees have basic knowledge of Adobe suite software. This wasn't indicated on course profile.

Re Trainer: she let us know right away that she did not like to use the book as her guide and that at the end of the day we would check it to make sure we had covered what was needed, however... having attended a previous "Level 1" I must say I much preferred using the book as a guide.I found that by just "checking" at the end if we had covered every thing, meant my notes on a particular subject were not on the corisponding pages because I didn't have time to find the correct page to write them on.

The course was fine. However,there were not enough books available, people had to share and only a few people were able to take a book home the same day. It was difficult to find the Cameron Library and to get to the class from the parking lots where you can park. It was frustrating especially in -30'C weather. The instructor was great.
