Lori,

Thank you for doing a great job teaching the class. I have had 17 years experience of Tandem System administration, followed by 10 years of UNIX (primarily AIX) and now VMS... it all makes more sense now. I would recommend your class to anyone.

Judy C. Sr. UNIX Admin in the Healthcare Industry

The key to PARSEC Group's quality training is our instructors; all our courses are delivered by senior level instructors who bring valuable, real-world experience to the classroom, which makes for increased applicability of your newly gained knowledge in your own real life situations.
