1 on 1 training was very worth while, Andy and I were able to go at a pace that suited us both and that worked very well. Also able to personalize it when necessary. Overall very good!

Very beneficial having a one day one-on-one class, as opposed to the two day group class. It was great being able to relate to my actual experience and areas in which I was unsure.
