Great teaching, always used examples for a better understanding for us shy ones who don’t want to ask.
Super friendly and made us feel more comfortable.
When I first came I was scared that I would struggle with learning the course content as I have never worked in the security industry. The instructor is an awesome instructor and I have learnt so much today that I have so much confidence regarding security employment.
