Philippe was really good at catering the training to our needs. He figured out what our prior knowledge was on the topic and went from there istead of having us go over things we already knew. If we had been in a group setting this would not have been possible. He also was helpful in letting us know how the 2003 version was different from the 2010. We therefore purchased an additional training manual for the 2010 version as we recently had it installed on our workstations.

There was a little mix up with the time the course was to be held. The website said 9-4 but it should have been 10-5, so when I arrived no one was there. However, it was dealt with quickly after a call and the trainer arrived quickly. I was the only person attending the course, it was very informative and it allowed us to touch on all of the questions I had specifically.

The instructor was excellent - she was very knowledgeable, patient, and really tried to tailor the course and specific examples to each student. The room was bit too cold in the morning and quite warm in the afternoon, so I would recommend wearing layers for comfort! I would highly recommend this course.
