“I want to thank CBT XPress for its outstanding CCNA Boot Camp. This class not only provided knowledge about the subject, but it really prepared us to pass the CCNA tests. We have used other vendors and were lucky if we got a 60% Certification rate out of them.
Like all companies, we are at the end of the year, so our budget was very limited. However, after I completed your course and passed the test, I was able to convince my boss to invest more money with your company. You did not let me down.
We have sent 11 people to your CCNA Boot Camp in the last 2 months, and we have achieved 11 CCNA Certifications (that is OUTSTANDING).
I have already started to reach out to our National Training Coordinators to let them know about your company and the great program you have. I will be looking for more CCNAs for next year and some CCNP/CCVP classes. Last, but not LEAST, I want to point out that this would not have been accomplished without the outstanding instructor you have. His knowledge and teaching skills are, for lack of a better term, OUTSTANDING! Keep the program the way it is, and we will continue to use your company.”

“The instructor was excellent! With his wealth of knowledge and experience, not only did he do a great job of preparing us, but, by concentrating on test-related topics throughout the whole time, he delivered the material in an anecdotal way that made it fun and exciting. I think I can speak on behalf of everyone that we, in spite of the intensity and stress due to the seriousness of the cert., actually looked forward to the training every day, up until the very end.
The training materials were very good. In addition to the Cisco printed stuff, the instructor provided some of his own stuff that was highly concentrated and extremely useful in helping us to master tough subjects like subnetting.
The facilities overall were great. Everything about the place was so nice - the hotel staff, the other patrons, not to mention the scenery. It was very conducive to the overall learning process and made a huge impact upon the retention of the subject matter.”
“The instructor was excellent. Having someone go through the labs and explain step by step what’s happening is better than sitting there typing in commands without understanding their impact. The instructor made the class very enjoyable. I will highly recommend this class and instructor to my organization for training in the future.
The training materials were good for the course.
The training was at a nice place, with easy access, and great food”.
“I recently attended one of your CompTIA Security+ Boot Camps with one of my employees. I was impressed with the professional approach of your instructor. I purposely attended the class before my staff, so I could evaluate your services, and to make a determination as to the direction in which the remaining staff members will train. I am sending your links to the other locations (Moorestown, NJ and Dahlgren, VA) that are covered by my contract. I expect additional future enrollment, based upon our experience. Once again, I would like to commend and thank your instructor.”

“Before coming to CBT, I was moving from job to job as a 48 state truck driver for nearly 10 years. The work involved spending several weeks a month away from my family, long days, and my pay was at the mercy of how many miles I was given to run per week (I was paid by the mile) or how reliable my truck would be. Break downs were common and if the truck was not rolling, I didn't get paid! For several years now I had wanted to do something else - get out of truck driving all together. I did some research on different industries that would have a long and promising future and pay much more than what I had been making. Ultimately, Information Technology won me over and I began asking anyone I knew who was proficient with a computer, how to break in to this industry. The most common response was: "GET SOME CERTIFICATIONS". One day while I was on the road, I called CBT and enrolled in the CompTIA and Cisco Boot Camps. I didn't even know how I was going to pay for it! I have been a long time follower of the motto "SINK OR SWIM" – if you want to do something bad enough, find a way to do it! After I finished the Boot Camps and completed my contract with my previous employer, I put my resume out on the internet, and four weeks later I started my first IT job with Lockheed Martin Inc. as an IT support analyst. The pay and benefits are phenomenal and the job is exciting and satisfying. Although I am attending school for a B.S. in IT security, I feel that without the certifications I received at CBT XPress, I would not have been offered the job in the first place. Professional certifications will make your resume stand out from the others, and the experience I had with CBT helped me to achieve this. CBT XPress is money well spent! Thank you, CBT.”
“I am taking the Exchange 2007 training in February next. I can tell you the MCITP …is well worth it. I used CBTXPress.com….Great company, EXCELLENT trainers and a relaxing location conducive to STUDY STUDY STUDY.”
“I just wanted to take a minute to write you and let you know how my training went for the three-day cram session for my A+ class in Safety Harbor, FL:
Fantastic, Fantastic, Fantastic!!!
Of course I was nervous because of the amount of data being crammed into our brains, but I went to both classes and studied & took the practice tests after the classes and I PASSED both of my A+ tests!
Safety Harbor, oh my God! It was such an awesome experience for both my wife and I. As a matter of fact, we lengthened our stay after the class. The food was absolutely wonderful and their hospitality was the best...
Thanks and I'll be in touch when I can come down for more certifications.”

"My decision to use CBT XPress Training was easy due to the fantastic customer support and service of your Training Advisors. Rarely have I encountered such excellent customer support as I have received from them. Their accurate description of the training class and guidance throughout the whole training process was above and beyond expectation. It has been a real pleasure working with a company as professional as yours!"
“…just letting you know I have a job interview this Thursday in St. Paul for a position as a Technical Support Specialist. I thought I’d keep you updated with how my search is going because without your help, I would never be as far as I am today with my passion for the IT field. You calling me for the CompTIA Boot Camp was the best call I have ever received. Thank you very much for the opportunity to expand my education. Thanks again.”
“Just a quick note to say how pleased I am coming out of the CCNA Boot Camp. It was an incredible experience, the value of which far exceeded what we paid. Your CBT XPress instructor was great, extremely knowledgeable and also very personable. All three of us passed both exams, and are all very impressed with the camp.”

“I would just like to provide my commentary on the CBT XPress MCSE Boot Camp I just recently completed. The set-up of the learning facility provided a hands-on opportunity to truly master the topics covered and not just memorize information. The ability to test in the same environment provided an added level of comfort.
The resort was a tranquil and peaceful backdrop to the MOST INTENSE academic endeavor of my life. However, thanks to the exceptional content delivery skills of our instructor, classes were a relaxed and fun learning environment. I would recommend anyone who not only wants to get certified but also truly wants to improve their skill set to attend this camp. I give it 10 on a scale from 1 to 10!
I have one more exam to complete on Aug. 20th and I will hold the MCSE certification. Again, thank you for your assistance in helping me obtain another goal in my IT career.”

“The experience that I had while at the Boot Camp was extremely pleasant and exceptional. The instructor was always on top of his game and never hesitated at giving us a response to any questions that we had about anything related to the material for the exams that we were preparing to take. I did not have trouble comprehending anything that the instructor was dishing out to us during our grueling 12 hours or more per day of training...I would highly recommend this Boot Camp to those who are ready and have done prior studying before coming because it definitely helps out. The material that we covered in class was not only extremely helpful on the exam but the instructor always stressed for us to ‘learn’ the material vs. just trying to learn enough to pass the exams. It’s an important concept to keep in mind when going through the course. When they say ‘Boot Camp’, that is what they mean; there is no time for fun and games but if you're there for the same reasons that I was then you need to focus and put your mind to it and get it done and accomplish what you went there for. It all depends on your desire to get these certification titles and I can only say that I'm thankful and proud of myself for making it all the way through.”

"As an IT Specialist, it is important to try and stay on the cutting edge of the industry. This is not always an easy thing to do as it changes all the time. To help me accomplish this, I have tried to give myself as many educational resources as I can. I have used and been affiliated with a number of online software training companies through the years. Some were every helpful, where as others could have been more so.
When I ordered my first courses with CBT XPress, I was immediately impressed with the structure, content and learning format that was being used. It is easy to comprehend and doesn’t have the unnecessary complexity that some of the other coursewares have. I recently finished a 10-month Career Training School, which is very well-known for its educational and instructor-lead training in the IT industry. CBT’s courseware covered a lot of what was taught in class as well as some points that were not. This certainly has been a big benefit to me for the completion of my certifications.
One other support mechanism that has been reassuring to me is the genuinely concerned follow ups by my training representative. He has always shown a personal level of involvement in my education with his company’s software as well as to me, as a person. I was not made to feel like just another account with him; that needed to be persuaded into feeling obligated to invest in more software, whether I needed it or not. He has been very helpful in all aspects; always there to answer any questions that I may have, keeping me up-to-date on the newest and latest software that was being presented.
My overall experience with CBT XPress has been very pleasant. Any misunderstandings have always been resolved, with 100% satisfaction. I will continue to use CBT XPress in the future with out a doubt. They come highly recommended in my book!!!"
"The Boot Camp training was excellent. The instructor was outstanding and he made sure everyone understood the information. I truly enjoyed the Boot Camp experience. I want to attend the MCITP Boot Camp..."

When I signed up for the CompTIA Boot Camp, I was unsure of what to expect. Earning my A+ Certificate was one of my goals, but when I decided to call to find out about the classes, I wasn't sure if this was what I wanted. However, after talking with CBT XPress about what I wanted for my future, I decided to sign up for not only one, but three classes…in Florida! As I waited for my departure date, my life around me changed dramatically. I needed a break and this was my chance. Ten days in Florida was just what I needed.
I arrived at the resort and I was speechless. My room was huge and so comfortable and I was not expecting even the surroundings to be so inviting. My first day of class started with breakfast and I met some really great people. Our group got together so well! The participant number was perfect for individual attention and the class was fully equipped for our needs.
The CBT XPress instructor was very knowledgeable and funny, too! The class was casual, which took a lot of the stress away, despite the fact that there were three classes to fit into only nine days. This was intense, since there was so much information, but with such a great group and instructor, it was easier to study. We had 24-hour access to the lab plus a spa right next door!
As for the final tests, they were tough. I had taken the A+ test before and I passed one of the two tests. I retook both of the A+ tests to challenge myself and passed both with flying colors! The Network + and Security + tests were much longer and even more intense, but I passed both of them, too! The key was to study with my CBT XPress classmates, take full advantage of the lab and ask a lot of questions. The majority of us passed all the three tests, including me! I couldn't believe it.
After I arrived home, I told everyone. I thought that I needed to make some serious changes in my life. I had no more goals at the moment, so I quit my job as a Computer Tech and sent out my resume. I not only received a better position AND better salary as the Database Manager/Systems Administrator, but also something new called RECOGNITION. It was the three classes that I had just taken that caught the eye of my new employer, thanks to CBT XPress.
Now, I am now able to enjoy my new job with confidence, plus it gives me more free time so I can also repair community computers as a volunteer Computer Tech. What’s more – I still use my class materials to help keep me sharp and will continue to do so!
I would like to thank everyone at CBT XPress who helped me and supported me throughout the entire process. And there's one more reason to be thankful: I didn't have to worry about travel arrangements - CBT XPress took care of everything. Now that's service! Thank you, once again.
"The CBT XPress CompTIA A+, Network+ & Security+ 9-day Combo Boot Camp has allowed me to become certified! The course pace is fast and intense, but with the quality of the instructor and his extensive knowledge of the subject, I learned ways to simplify complex concepts and really helpful tips to pass the exams. It was most certainly enriching, interesting and even fun!"

"I just wanted to tell you thank you for the class. It was great!
Our instructor was not just an instructor but a professional that took his job to the fullest. He recognized students like myself that needed that extra kick to get them to understand the material and did not stop there. If it were not for him, there wouldn’t have been as many passes as there were. I’ve had many other instructors but he is THE best I’ve ever seen. There are not many people like him that say they love their job and it’s obvious that they mean it!
Hats off to him and the service that I received from CBT XPress. I hope to receive more help from you in the future. If there is some other place that I need to post this, please let me know so that the credit goes to the right people."
"The CBT XPress instructor was a great teacher. He made himself available for any questions, even after classes, and seemed very into his work. I was very happy with the whole Boot Camp, from beginning to end. The only thing that I didn't like was saying goodbye to my fellow classmates when the Boot Camp was over."
