Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
I would not recommend WebAge. I would recommend a local provider, the arrangement was not ideal. Using rented space which consisted of a boardroom was not ideal and very disruptive to both the instructor and students. In addition, providing the course to both in class and online students was not ideal. I paid for an instructor lead course so that I don't need to deal with the issues of online training.
