OVERALL EXPERIENCE
1. What did you like about this program?
Text Response
I really enjoyed all of the hands on material, and the amount of class time that was given.
The teachers were very knowledgable in the topics and went above and beyond to make sure
everyone had a chance to understand the material.
1. I liked the fact that everything that we learned will actually be used day tot day on the job. 2.
The class was as orginized as it could be for the fact that it was the first time the class has ever
been run. 3. We were given very very discriptive and well written powerpoints that delivered the
material very clearly.

2. What would you change about this program?
Text Response
I would include more hands on, and interactive learning for the A+ and Net+ classes.
The program should have enough equipment to let each person work on a trainer individually. I
believe this would help everyone understand the fundamentals of the program more fully.
If possible more time in lab

There needs to be equipment to use to build and practice networking skills. Learning out of the
