Classroom Experience - August 2021

Student Comments

  • “This first week has been incredible and has completely surpassed the high expectations I already had for the program! Extremely excited moving forward! Love the team mentality and finally being able to get outside of my comfort zone!”
  • “Our instructor addresses our concerns and answers questions in a well defined scope. He goes above and beyond to keep us on track, comfortable, and make sure we’re getting the information we need in a timely manner.”
  • “I honestly have a hard time choosing. As someone with no prior tech experience this has been such a fascinating 2 weeks. Building VMs, Building PCs, how to subnet, functionality of everything. I couldn’t ask for better instructors either. I truly appreciate the patience and teaching skills that these teachers have.”
  • “As someone with no background at all with C#, I feel like I’ve learned a considerable amount. It still seems overwhelming at times but now I know where to find resources to help figure something out.”
  • “These two weeks were a mountain of information that I struggled to retain while moving forward with a positive attitude. I had a lot of self doubt on whether or not I am retaining / engaged enough to carry me through the end of the course. This created stress for me as a student. Feedback for Mr. Adam. I found it very helpful when you reiterated that it’s “okay for us to ask to hear something again, or to slow down” . That key phrase (again, reiterating it) finally pushed into my head that I have the time to slow down and get a definition (or a couple words) straightened out. By straightening out those definitions, I am able to let go of some “study anxiety” and push forward with a more positive attitude. Thanks for your hard work and energy.”

  • “I retained far more than I thought I would, and then some. Because of Jeff, I recalled information from previous weeks I thought hadn’t soaked in, or had trouble remembering previously.”

Jeff Krakenberg – Security+ Days

  • “Tons of info in a short amount of time but did great at actively trying to get us to ask questions and answering them as clearly as possible”
  • “Super Knowledgeable about Security. WOW!! Alot of information covered and the instructor Jeff killed it.”
  • “I enjoyed Jeff as an instructor, I appreciated him offering is free time to help us when needed.”
  • “Security is in my background and I enjoy the security side of things.”

Matt Neilsen – WS3 Days

  • “great class”
  • “The Labs”

Adam Jurotich – NET2 Days

  • “These two weeks were a mountain of information that I struggled to retain while moving forward with a positive attitude. I had a lot of self doubt on whether or not I am retaining / engaged enough to carry me through the end of the course. This created stress for me as a student. Feedback for Mr. Adam. I found it very helpful when you reiterated that it’s “okay for us to ask to hear something again, or to slow down” . That key phrase (again, reiterating it) finally pushed into my head that I have the time to slow down and get a definition (or a couple words) straightened out. By straightening out those definitions, I am able to let go of some “study anxiety” and push forward with a more positive attitude. Thanks for your hard work and energy.”
  • “I feel confident and I trust Mr. J. I feel like he believes in us more that we believe in ourselves.”
  • “Hard to say honestly. Lots of information with many super interesting things.”
  • “CompTIA Net+ has a lot of information to digest. In this week, my favorite aspect was Labs and hands-on configuration of devices. It bridged a lot of the Lecture knowledge to tangible results on our interfaces.”
  • “My instructor makes it fun for me.”
