3. How do you find the training environment
Basically, I find Siva taught it quite well. Was less rushed than Autocad training. It took awhile to understand his accent the first time during Autocad, but I managed to understand him towards mid-week and the end. So when doing Sketchup, it was easier to understand this time.

However, perhaps he could speak slower so easier for us to understand. Aside from that, job well done.

1) Take care of computer environment used by the participants: Windows & MAC don't have the same functions. Better to check with the attendees prior the courses 2) I got a version 2018 when the trainer and the other participant got the version 2017 - I met issues during the exercises

The trainer was very professional and expert. However he was more engineer oriented. Could be interesting to cover the creative potential of Sketchup. (Posted on 12/6/2017)
