The room was kept at about 100 degrees. Also, we needed Photoshop CS5 on MACS. After we paid/registered, I was emailed and told they didn't have Macs. I said okay, we'll cancel. Then they said whoops sorry, we do have Macs. 12 hours before the course was to begin (we were travelling from out of town) they emailed to say they didn't have CS5 but only CS4 but that the instructor was "very knowledgeable." When we got there, there were in fact two computers that had CS5, but they weren't MACS, so we had to choose, either a PC with CS5 or a MAC with CS4. My PC kept crashing because it was so old and slow it couldn't handle a program like Photoshop. And since we were on CS5, everything the instructor told the class to do did not match what was on our screen and we had to hold the class up every half an hour saying "I don't have that option on my screen." The instructor made several references to sex (I appreciated his sense of humor, but not his taste or lack of) and he seemed more like a surfer dude than a teacher. He was very disorganized ,jumping all over the place, changing his mind about what he was going to talk about, etc. It was hard to follow what was going on in his head.

From the "get go" the day was filled with delays and set backs (crashing computers and time delays to upload material). It appears that zero time given to course preparation....photo's had not been uploaded onto computers; the computers had not been pre-tested for functionality. The training room was filled with static - likely contributing to the problems with the computers. There was student manual that was missing (mine). The instructor provided his copy to me, but was left with none himself until after the lunch hour. I do not beleive the instructor had any kind of tuturial/instructor manual prepared - certainly one was not followed. Students were not given the basic of this course in any formal training approach - it might have been useful to follow the manual but it all seemed very hap-hazard hard understand, confusing. I did not know should be learning and why. The terms or functions (tools/keys)in the software was not well explained leaving the student wondering what was and wasn't important to know and why... - The training area lacks professionalism and cleanliness....There is nowhere to go for "breaks" (ie no lounge areas / or lunch if you happen to bring your own... the stairways skinks...

Extremly bad training. Company obviously not prepared for training--trainer's computer did not work and went down 4 or 5 times, my workstation did not work, I moved from computer to computer, none of these worked so had to share. Workstations not prepared prior to course with proper files (instructor had to load during break and this took over an hour). I could go on and on about how terrible this training was and this was not due to the instructor who was trying. We ended the session and asked for a re-take as the training was a complete disaster from start to end. One star for many of the above ratings is being generous.
