"It is very good to have a step by step reference to the course, along with the manual. The face to face training was very good, but using the webinar makes practice easier and me a lot more confident in the application of the software."

"Information is well managed and presented in an organized manner. For a new user, usually learning new software leads to information overload but this was fairly easy to grasp and I highly recommend this to all the new users."
