Better trainer - Might RecommendReview by Colin Wolstencroft
1. Do you find the course meet your expectation?
2. Do you find the trainer knowledgeable in this subject?
3. How do you find the training environment
The original trainer was not available for the 2 days and was replaced with someone who, although very nice, was really not at all good. Not a good teacher and is knowledge of AutoCAD was very limited. As discussed prior to the course, I am fairly advanced with certain aspects of the software but, being self taught, I lack skills in some other areas. However, the trainer lacked even some of the most basic skills needed. One more than one occasion during the 2 days he would set an exercise and then was unable to do it himself. A lot of the training was him reading off various CAD training websites. I think I taught him more than he taught me. I was able to explain more to the other student than the teacher.
In some ways, the course was enjoyable as a way to share ideas, but I found it mostly frustrating. Certainly for me, it was not worth the $498. The trainer did mention that it might be possible to set up a 1 to 1 session with the original trainer, so I would be interested in following up on that (Posted on 2/9/2018)

3. How do you find the training environment
The rooms are in poor conditions as well as the place (shopping center) and the area around. Offering the right environment, more recent, modern and clean would help. I spent 3 days there and sincerely I will not come back there.

Siva Moorthy (the trainer) is particularly professional, very effective and friendly. Great attitude, great knowledge. (Posted on 12/7/2017)
Excellent teacher.Review by Yi Wen

3. How do you find the training environment
Sivamoorthy was an excellent teacher. He was both patient and extremely proficient. He manage to break down difficult concepts into bite sized information for me to better comprehend. Siva also puts in the effort to cater to individual demands whilst fulfilling what needs to be taught, thus maximising the student's requirements and strengthening one's understanding.

I strongly recommend anyone interested in taking an autocad course to take it with siva and you will not be disappointed at all. (Posted on 10/7/2017)

3. How do you find the training environment
Allow participants to design something similar to what they will encounter in actual job, rather than just the examples prepared in the slides. Flexibility would be advantageous

Milo/Snacks/Drinks could be provided. A/C could be reduced as room was too cold or left in control of participant. (Posted on 10/5/2017)
