The training was exceptional... no question went unanswered, and he made it a point that we understand the concepts presented. He has tremendous patience, always ensuring that we understood before moving forward. The course material was delivered at a comfortable pace. He is also simply a nice person to be around. I strongly recommend Tim as your App-V instructor."
