AutoCAD Level 2

Attended: AutoCAD Level 2

Joe is an amazing instructor, I went into the class with great concern that my lack of computer skills would make the class difficult. Joe was easy to follow and made the class interesting and fun, the 7 hour class flew by. I definitely recommend the class for first timers or those just trying to polish up on their skills.

Joe was an outstanding teacher! Very engaging, incredibly experienced & the energy of the class was very positive. He has some funny stories that he will share throughout the class as well. I would highly recommend this class for anyone wanting to begin their AutoCad education. Hoping to come back for level 2 or to attend remotely soon.

Microsoft Excel Essentials

Love this class, Andrew is very knowledgeable and patient. The class went at a brisk clip, so it is not for Excel beginners! He has a very clear, straightforward way of explaining things and I got a lot more out of this class then previous Excel classes I have taken.

Pretty good overview. Small class - if you aren't great at learning software, you should take more than once.

CompTIA A+ Certification (Virtual)

There appeared to several issues with spelling and grammar in the written course materials that could be corrected by proof-reading the material. There's also an issue with the Core 2 Mock test presented. In addition to spelling grammar issues, there are questions which end mid-sentence and also questions presented as multiple answers, but only had an option to select a single answer. Juan's knowledge of the material was quite good.

CompTIA Security+ Certification

Concise class with helpful tips for registration, learning and of course, preparation for the exam. Friendly trainer always open to questions.

I taught overall it was an okay class. Also, the class ended about 430pm and it was suppose to end 6pm.

Bookkeeping Basics


Attended: Bookkeeping Basics

It was not a great class. Rapheal rushed through the material, and didn't explain the principals behind the exercises. He really didn't teach - he just read from a power point and rushed through the answers. He would solicit the room for "questions", but if you had one, you were made to feel like you were being disruptive by stopping the flow of the class to bother him with a question. You also were not given any practice materials, worksheets to work along with him during the class which was really unfortunate. His idea of a practice exercise was to put a student on the spot in front of the class to work through a practice exam question which puts a lot of pressure on students and doesn't really provide any real teaching (just other students yelling out answers). I'm glad I got the chapters of the book via an email with the working papers after the 1st class, because I didn't want to waste my time with the remaining classes. This class is a waste of money / investment. He prides himself in being able to teach bookeeping in a shorter time than most colleges, but he doesn't fully execute any of the concepts or actually teach. Definitely don't recommend TIA to anyone and definitely don't recommend Bookeeping Basics there (Rapheal is the only one that teaches this class).

Instructor was super knowledgeable made excel easy. This course was perfect for me since I need something quick and easy. I now fully understand how to make charts correctly and what can cause functions to fail. This class will save me tons of time at work. I highly recommend.
