The lab was poorly designed, some part of the labs couldn't work with this network design, we ask several time the instructor to take action but nothing was done, he finally send them an email but the NterOne team never proceed to any changes. I would have expect the instructor to go hands-on on the lab and try to figure it out to see how it is suppose to work even if labs are outsourced by GK.

This is one of those courses similar to a number of them at Global Knowledge that could be done in 2 days or less. We spent about l50-60% of the time working on the exercises which is fine, however it would be more helpful if at least half of the exercises were done in the class by the instructor and work through rather than just showing an talking to the canned answers on the workbook. Also, I find it very cumbersome when Global Knowledge now provided one book (course materials & exercise workbook) in one. The entire class spent way to much time flipping back and forth between the course content & the workbook when we were doing the exercises, what a waste of time!

The course was great however the 8:30 am start time was tough with a kid that I had to get to school. I either just made it or was within 10 minutes of the start time. A 9 am start time would be easier for people in my shoes. My classmates and I found the network slow and the network dropped a few times while working on labs. Hard copies of the lectures and labs would have been preferable. Very annoying to have to either print them out 10 pages at a time or to work only through the app.

I do not feel as though I learned any new skills from taking this course. I did enjoy some of the course material but there was something missing from it. Very basic, highly repetitive. Everyone knows how to make a "to do" list but how to you prioritize and create focus in your daily work? I still am not sure of that.

Perhaps a less experienced instructor would be better to teach the more basic material. While our instructor was very knowledgeable, she seemed lost in some of the more basis functions and interfaces at times (probably because she hasn't had to work with them regularly for years). Could have spent A LOT less time going off on stories/tangents or explaining the lab/e-reader interface quirks, but overall a decent class with a few good pointers here and there.

The textbook(s) given for this course (ICND1v2) do not do very well when it comes to explaining the various acronyms and abbreviations when they first show up in the text. Many of these acronyms / abbreviations are not industry standards but rather Cisco-specific terms and the Glossary at the end(s) do not contain a full suite of the terms that are referenced throughout the text, leaving the reader to search for their meanings elsewhere...

Employees were not as professional as they could in at least couple situation. The classroom was too hot in the first day, and freezing in the following days. This course should be a 5 days course, and not 4. Impossible to handle 100% of the content in 4 days.

This course was way more basic than the outline describes, I felt that we should have covered more of the functions of Visio and less of the basic windows/microsoft functions.

Was disappointed with the course content. For a level two course felt the trainer focused far too much on basic skills and not enough on animation and advanced features. Class progress was slow during the day, yes I learned new skills and learned about new capabilities of PPT 10 but relied on google not this course to perfect them.

I would like to have had more in-depth work on the process analysis portion and less on modelling. From the outline, I thought there would be more focus on analysis than there was. I think the course could maybe be 5 days instead of 4, or maybe state that knowledge of modelling is a requirement to take this course. Other than that, it was a good course. Good for more entry-level BA types; if you have a lot of experience, you will probably find it doesn't add that much.

The instructor was fantastic - very knowledgable and engaging. The "polestar" was used only briefly and in my opinion had no value add to this course.

I was not able to take the course book with me. I payed for the course so i should not have to buy the course book. The downloadable PDF of the course book is not printable. I like a hard copy to read as opposed to the computer screen.

Room was very cold! However the facility itself was clean with a friendly environment. Instructor had average knowledge of Microsoft Project 2010 and often could not answer questions. Presentation was average - instructor read handout page by page from a photocopied document that was projected onto wall.

Very informative course. Covered everything I was looking to learn about Access. Would be interested in taking the level 2 course to expand on what I learned in this one. Global Knowledge in Mississauga is very nice and my instructor was great. A bit of a long drive coming from Durham region but would return and would reccomend to others.

This was a virtual class so I cannot comment on the facility (I have rated the facility as I could not submit this otherwise), and because the course was Eastern Standard Time, for myself it was a little early as Eastern Standard Time was 2 hours ahead of my time. The instructor Mark Husereau was very knowledgeable and a really great with being patient, (this was my first virtual class). Mark used real examples throughout the course which was really great.

- do we get a certifiacate for completing the courseÉ - although the instructor did give us excercises to do I would have liked a few more - almost like a test, so that I made sure I retained and understood what was taught. I`m a learn to do by doing person and like the instrutor lead courses so I can have someone there to explain in my terms how things work. I`ll have to really use the online excercises to make sure Ì am confident when I need to do something in Excel.

The instructor was excellent as was the hands-on learning approach. The only thing I took issue with was the fact that there were a lot of bilingual persons taking the course and they tended to ask questions in French, during this English class. The instructor was trying very hard to explain everything in both languages, but I felt that these students should have requested a French-speaking classroom setting if they wanted to speak French.

The course was very relevant. I was able to apply the knowledge I aquired in the course to my job on the very next day. The only complaint I have is with the temperature of the room. It was freezing! Students has to wear a jacket or sweater. We were told the temp gage was shared with another classroom that was quite warm so they had turned the temp very low causing our room to be very uncomfortable.

I am very disappointed with the handouts. I was told I could go online and download a copy of the manual, the problem is that I would like the printed copy of the manual. I chatted online with one of your technitian who was unable to help me. Then I was told someone would contact me by phone to help me. That never happened. When taking a training course, a person EXPECTS to leave the course with ALL the material.
