    Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
    I would recommend this vendor, with cautions. The course content did not nearly cover everything listed in the course description. The course started late and finished early, the instructor did not follow the course materials at all, and many topics that were supposed to be covered were not. Hopefully they are in the course book and I will be able to work through it on my own. I haven't had time to go through the book yet, and we didn't use it in the course. The material that was presented was good, but the instructor's knowledge was limited.

    The Teacher really explained every topic very well and kept us very interested. She was a wonderful teacher.

    I registered for the Access level two after already taking the level one last week thinking that it would be a continuation of what I learned in level one. This was not the case, it was all the same material as in level one. I don't understand how this can happen at the same school. I felt that the level two was really a waste of my time and mostly money.

    I found there was too much theory. Hard to follow the second day. Should be more theory day 1 and then plenty more exercises Day 2.

    Location isn't the greatest, but I had a good instructor, great computers to work with and relevant exercises. I would go back for more courses.

    Trainer was good. Gave explanation WHY things are done in specific order. Not just "do this, do that"

    This is my second workshop with CBIT. The facilities and ammenities offered are exceptional. Administrative staff are very friendly, helpful and eager to assist. Course content and quality of instruction have more than met with my needs and expectations. I am very confident in their ability to provide quality programming and have already recommended them to others in my organization.

    Course was fantastic and the instructor very knowledgeable and well organized. Due to a small class size, she was able to customize the course content to meet our individual training needs. In addition, CBIT provided each of us with the complete Org Plus manual which will be very handy as a reference tool back in the workplace. CBIT staff were welcoming and friendly - and served a hot breakfast at 10:00 am! There is also a fridge, microwave and break room avail. Not many great restaurants in the area, so better to pack your lunch. Overall, a great day.

    We were provided a cd with a pdf copy of the manual for future reference which is great but no printed manual was provided to refer to during the course - this would have been helpful for learning.
