"Excellent Instructor. Took time to recreate instructions to better suit our needs and was very thorough in explaining everything. Even as someone who doesn't have an abundance of experience with Microsoft Power Platform, I did not feel like that was a hindrance in learning the material. I really appreciated this course and would definitely take one again with this instructor!"

Comments about enhancing the Courseware
"I think the amount of information to time of course was sufficient. Usually we would get out of class earlier than the allotted time. Only wish was that the course started at 8am instead of 7am."

Comments about the Instructor
"For most of our labs, Tyler created simplified instructions that made that helped me better apply what we were learning. There were a couple of questions from the class that he didn't immediately know the answer to, but he researched them overnight and presented solutions to those questions. I'm looking forward to my next class with Tyler."
