Absolutely, hands down, the best course I have ever attended! Seriously! I'm not exaggerating! Linda is an amazing trainer. So clear and concise in her instructions, very knowledgeable, very personable, friendly and entertaining. Lessons were a lot of fun. I didn't want the course to end! I will definitely be coming back for the refresher course. I will also recommend Dynamic web Training to my colleagues and friends.
