It was right on the mark. I have been to over a dozen classes for different network training and Bryan is far and above the best instructor I have had.
Bryan is an excellent instructor. Very knowledgeable on all the course material and I have yet to ask a question he did not have an answer to.
Good labs, well setup and access to them from outside the classroom is very helpful.

5 stars Excellent

It was an excellent class. The instructor was very knowledgeable on the subject. He covered all the material in great detail. He went at the pace of the experience of the students. He highlighted areas where we might see questions on the tests. He answered all my questions. The hands-on labs were interesting and relevant. The practice tests were good preparation for the exam. I passed my test. I would take a class from this instructor and Boson again.
