Simply the training was extraordinary and the instructor was outstanding !

I am Gnanaskandan, System Admin form Singapore, I found RJP Infotek through Google. with a immediate response form my  course counselor Ms. Munazah, we had confirmed our MCSE 2012 server infrastructure boot-camp in couple of email conversations. On my first day of training I was inspired by the corporate ambiance of RJP and wonderful service provided by Ms. Munazah. Our Training was conducted by Mr. A.K. Shajahan,  Senior Trainer, who got a sound knowledge about Microsoft products and services. His Teaching techniques lead our training session in a professional manner with a full fledged training lab.  During his lectures, he demonstrated the typical solutions were worked in the past and proved the current technological advancement, I personally gained lot from his technical experience as well as learn more about latest technology than I paid,  at the same time I should appreciate our other lecturers, who helped me to achieve success. Thanks to RJP.
