The course trainer was very knowledgable about the Railway engineering. He was great about going into detail about specific questions I had. Overall, I think the course trainer was able to make complex information easy to understand.

The instructor is a completely expert teacher who communicates in a wonderfully clear manner. Her examples and guided exercises are outstanding, as are the skills she uses to involve the learner.
