Class wasn't very structured and didn't cover much material. There was a lot of dead time. There was much more material that the teacher could have taught the class given the four-hour class duration.

The class was great for when i was there. I had an emergency situation come up so i had to leave about 90 minutes early. More clear directions to the building and classroom would have been nice. Having the equipment setup in advance would have been nice to consolidate the class. The instructor Sven was great.
