z/OS and DB2 Training

Our instructor did a truly excellent job of conveying the material. Our students were already familiar with the technology and moved through the material quickly. I was especially impressed with the ability of the instructor to go "off course" and provide extra material on-the-fly at our request. They did an amazing job. Very friendly, very knowledgeable with excellent teaching skills.
