PCCI’s OS X Fundamentals training accelerated my learning curve. I don't feel like a newbie anymore. I had my two daughters (ages 10 and 11) with me in the same class and they appreciated the new learnings they got. Thanks to Dominique James for recommending the class and to Mark Miranda for teaching it well - even with young kids in the class. — Lino Nabong
I discovered a lot about what the Mac can do, because the instructor showed things step-by-step. The instructor was also very accommodating to questions, no matter how “stupid” the questions sounded.— Dail Deri, professional photographer
