Borys
Good course and very useful. Just too fast paced and intense for me but then its just personal. Very good trainer.
Jaydeep
A well paced course for someone with 1-2 years general (even non-RHEL) experience that helps fill in gaps in knowledge. Mark is a knowledgeable and extremely professional trainer who delivers the content very well, and creates a very good overall atmosphere for learning.
