The course was well structured and the delivery very good. The pace would not suit everybody but was necessary to cover the course content fully. More supporting documentation would have been useful especially with regard to the test configuration examples that were worked through with the tutor which were quite difficult to keep up with and necessitated a lot of screen captures to refer back to alongside my copious notes.
Course was run really well. The instructor was knowledgeable in the area of training, so any questions I had could be answered and he also included some real world scenarios to help with understanding
