» 55039: Windows PowerShell Scripting and Toolmaking

The instructor was very easy to follow and understand. He added items that were not in the course material. I would take another class with him as an instructor.

» 10961: Automating Administration with Windows PowerShell

One of the better on-line classes I have taken. No technical issues encountered during training. I really prefer a class room environment (not the instructors fault). To easy for walk-up traffic to find me when taking classes online. Instructor was great. Provided some good real world examples on how to use various items presented in training.
