Comments from Colleagues

"An outstanding piece of work here! It's not at all stuffy, yet it's not at all fluffy either. Great illustrations, animations, games and voice-over allow the student to maintain attention across multiple hours of instruction. It has some excellent technical meat in it, but it doesn't get bogged down in techno trivia. The overall content is excellent, with plenty of URLs for follow-on study for those who are so inclined."
Craig Larrew, Marketing Manager - Cisco Systems

"I am very much a visual and audio learner and this training was great, up to date, accurate, and the relevance of image, text, and voice was spot on."
Keith Klemba, e-Education Chief Technology Advisor for Hewlett-Packard

"A very impressive & inspiring presentation, full of information. A credit to your team & organization." - Robert Farrar - Computer Concepts, Australia

"The WKMN Wireless training is excellent. It's well organized into appropriate sections giving the learner a solid background before any technical terminology and concepts are presented. The flow was even and clean, the sound was appropriate and the quizzes were entertaining as well as enlightening."
Mark Jordon - Manufacturing Training Web Project Specialist - Cisco Systems

"This is a very well presented and informative training package. It would suit various roles, from helpdesk to IT manager as an introduction to wireless technology. I look forward to future packages." - Adrian James, Communications R&D Consultant - Zomba Records

"I enjoyed the training. The web side-trips were especially worthwhile. I think you may have bumped into a new paradigm for cooperation and training. The Internet's potential for providing inexpensive yet high quality distance learning is incredible. Also, I'd much rather spend $50 to take a well thought out course than to buy a reference book that I might never read."
