QTS always thinks about the end user. Their knowledge, courses, guides, videos and most of all the QTS program is excellent and focuses on what the industry and trainers need. I also appreciate how they allow us to have access to the PPTs and videos so we can go back and review when needed.

I’ve really enjoyed this training so far. The exercises are very helpful. I wasn’t sure how I’d like virtual training, but it’s been very engaging. Time flies by!

My favorite part of the virtual workshop was the interactive learning – I definitely learn better when I get the chance to practice using the software and get real-time feedback.

It’s nice to have this option to save on O&M expenses for training costs.
