The knowledge of the trainer, the breadth of the topics covered, the labs, are valuable to refer to again -- what I would like to see is a separate download availability of the slides used during the course. They were very well done and would be a valuable resource. The trainer's knowledge on the subject was impressive. The breadth of the topics covered, the labs -- will be valuable to refer to again.
