I found the trainer made the course very interesting.
I liked the good fast pace of the training, and if we were stuck we would then slow down and delve into the subject more before moving on. This allowed us to get a lot of information in the small time. We also covered issues/differences between Mac and Windows which is very useful if we need to use different types of computers (I use both Mac and Windows). I liked the fact that we would follow along on our computers the actions our trainer was performing, then we would verify we had the same/similar results to confirm what we did was correct.

Very well explained.
Personalized one on one training. Trainer was really engaging and easy going. Got what I wanted to learn from the session.
It was great to not only have an expert on the topic but a professional trainer who was able to read his audience (admittedly of just one) and adjust his emphasis accordingly

The content and organization of the training was great, the trainer had in depth knowledge of the tool and concepts and could clearly communicate the same during the training.
