Working through the real world examples in our own system was most helpful, and the work files provided by the trainer were good also.

Appreciate the trainer's flexibility with using our system for the training, it helped our learning experience. He had a good helpful attitude.

What did you like the most about the training?:

Mr., Joy (the trainer) listened to our needs and accommodated us to help us to get familiar with the material and to be able to use the material for our needs. Mr. Joy is very knowledgeable of the material and was able to answer any and all questions we had.

Overall I feel like the training material and instructor was presented very well. I can start using Selenium on my mine with minimal help or support.

Gayle Caldwell - Texas Windstorm Insurance Association

Donald (the trainer) was great. He adapted to our training needs.

The last part where we could use selenium IDE with our own applications so the examples were focused on our actual applications we use at TWIA.

Eduardo Mena - Texas Windstorm Insurance Association

I thought the pacing was perfect. Good amount of interaction considering it was done over the computer. Lots of interaction available by connecting to a virtual machine and following along. Thought the project we completed had very clean code and gave me a good idea of how something like this should be compiled. Will be able to apply what I learned to the workplace.
