Anonymous, Bedford Hospital. - Microsoft MTA: Windows Server Administration Fundamentals (3 days) (1/7/2019 to 3/7/2019)

"The instructor was excellent, he delivered essentially very dry material with clarity and wit. He clearly has great experience in Azure, and was able to support the course with real-life war-stories which brought the course to life. My only criticism is that I would have liked to see more time devoted to the labs, but that was probably hard given the material that was covered. I am looking forward to using the knowledge I gained in the course soon. I really like the immersive nature of the training, with the hotel and restaurant only being two minutes away. 24 hour access was a good idea. The accommodation and food were very good. "
