Thoroughly enjoyed this class … Both Instructors [Tim & John L.] made what was originally thought to be dry and difficult to learn, easy and fun. This course was tailored perfectly for new UNIX users … The overall experience was highly educational and fun. Thank you!

Hands-On Laboratory Sessions
All of our hands-on classes provide
generous allotments of lab-time
for students to "practice what we preach".
The typical routine consists of:
a Lecture Session of
30-70 minutes duration,
a supervised Lab Session of equal duration, in which
the Instructor guides students in work
carefully designed Lab Exercises
that reinforce the skills covered in the lecture
a Lab Review Session in which the Instructor explains
for the Lab Exercises.
Depending on the course, there may be from 4-6 Lab Sessions per day,
for a total of 12-30 lab sessions per hands-on course.
We believe it is extremely beneficial for students
to have an experienced Instructor available to guide their early efforts,
and rapidly point out errors that could take
them hours or days to identify.
This is one of the many ways in which Instructor-led training is superior
to other approaches!
