This was my third corporate training program from Vinsys and every time the experience keeps getting better. I have completed two successful certification programs already, and a lot of the credit goes to the clarity brought about by the relevant subject matter experts (from Vinsys) who trained us. This training module was pure value for money as more than the theory aspect, it required explanation from the application of this knowledge in the corporate world – and the trainer was able to do that with ease. Also, I liked the way all key concepts were covered as part of this training program, in such a short span of time – without making us feel overloaded with information.
