Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
I realize that we are constantly dealing with technology, but I still think for a registration fee of almost $3,000, that a hardcover book should be included. I know that the option to print the book on a one-time basis exists.

The instructor was very knowledgeable and answered all questions. Jarod did an excellent job presenting.

The room was cold. I had to sit next to the space heater. It would be good to tell future patrons to dress warmly AHEAD of time. No suprises.

This course provides an excellent overview and a bit of practice on the various functions of SharePoint 2013. I was disappointed at the number of exceedingly long breaks given after each module. I would have preferred less break time and more content to the course. Having never taken a SharePoint course with another provider, I don't know if this is the norm with all providers of just this one in particular.

I ranked the "Use of Technology" low because for Users who were remote the VM's that were setup were a little wonky. Could be very slow at times and then sometimes they needed to be refreshed to work properly with the lab. In some instances we couldn't follow along as replication would not occur fast enough and we would have our lab cut short (for us remote Users).

The instructor was good at remembering to acknowledge the online students even though he was facing a classroom of students also.

Insructor was not so good with the live examples. Also the handouts was not so useful

The trainer was excellent, very knowledgeable and had a lot of valuable experience to share. The problem was that there were way too many workshops that took too long and interfered with getting the maximum benefit from the instructor and the course.

This was quite informative. It was a great opportunity to have ‘real life’ discussions with certified PMs. The instructor had excellent examples and was able to share his PM experiences with us with concrete examples. In addition, this was a great opportunity to network with private sector/public sector PMs and develop a better appreciation of PM on both sides of the fence. Cheers, CL

I did not like the video format

As a remote attendee, it appeared the instructor paid attention to the "Attendee" and "Chat" windows only a few times throughout the day, so I was not confident that he would see if I sent a message or raised my hand during the course.
Reviewed by 2013
The chairs were not very comfortable and the material contained spelling and grammatical error (a few but still)as well as repetition of words.

Was a bit slow the last 1/2 day. Of course, for some, this was the last of a 4 day course (not just 2 days).

I really enjoyed the course and I learned a lot. The pace was excellent.

The room was excellent on its own - less distraction and no noise around you. There was no direction to the room when I walked in and therefore was not sure if I was heading in the right direction. We were not provided with the direction that there was coffee and fridge on the 3rd floor, and the bathroom floor was dirty.

Instructor was eager to assist but lacked subject matter expertise. Course time management was very poor. Content provided could have been delivered effectively in a one day course.

Good Course, good trainer. All questions addressed equally and in a timely professional manner.

The course content was interesting; however, the instructor didn't have enough knowledge about Microsoft Sharepoint 2010 Development and wasn't able to answer questions without google search. In the future CTE needs to make sure the instructors have real on-hands experience and are highly trained in the technologies they are supposed be teaching.
