Best certification class I've ever been to. The dynamic duo (Siraj and Susan) bring years of experience into a fun, energetic learning environment.

I learned so much, and the interaction between everyone was productive with knowledge. The class showed me all the things I thought I knew and then some.

It was a great session. The trainer connected well with us, and the training was also more of an open discussion. All the participants presented a magnificent view of their experiences, and we got to learn new things from the forum.

I attended SPC 4.5 course. It was a wonderful experience.

Siraj and Susan - both were communicative. Within a day, I could connect with them. Overall it was a vibrant experience. I liked the way Siraj correlated scenarios with his own work experience, his networking, and case studies.

My special mention of Siraj for the way he presents deconstructs and explains concepts is merely superb. Thank you for the book of poems. I have a flair for poetry so I will cherish it.

Thanks to Susan for being gentle for patiently answering our questions.

The workshop was very informative. It was nice collaborating with others to work through the process. The instructors were beneficial and knowledgeable about the subject.

The class itself is intense. It is a lot of information to consume on a given day. The exercises help break up the level and put the learning to use.
