I was very impressed with this course and the instructor. The only improvement I could suggest is to provide course materials, especially ones that would facilitate note taking. The course was fast paced enough that it was sometimes difficult to take notes. But I wouldn't change the pace - it was just right.

This was an excellent course and the instructor was very knowledgeable. He explained every step clearly and simply. He showed you how to do things and gave you time to try it yourself. The course outline was precise and we covered everything mentioned. It was a great atmosphere, very clean and hospitable (coffee, tea, snacks, a fridge for your lunch, tableware, an area to sit for lunch or break). I would definitely recommend Eliquo for any training and will definitely be going back for other courses.
