I different instructor would have made a much greater impact on my ability to engage with the course. Niels Macamo was the least engaging instructor I have had. Niels placed a seemingly false priority on the practice lab materials when the majority of the certification exam content is covered in the Cyber Quotient and ACI skill assessment question banks.
It was entertaining at times. I definitely laughed out loud. Overall, I know that Niels has the knowledge, and he did get better toward the end of the second week of class.Response : Kelly, thank you for your comment. Your feedback will be used in developing instructors in order for students to have a positive experience.
Overall, an effective course in providing resources needed to study for the exam. Disappointing, however, that the course did not cover the material in the current exam.Response : Luis, thank you for comment. Our content is always being audited in order to provide the best possible learning experience.
The slides should be able to stand alone by themselves. One should be able to make sense of what they are trying to explain. Then it should also be able explain it well. Many of these slides do not fit these qualifications--which are basic slide show principles.
I have mixed feelings about this course. The power points are laid out to cover everything we need to know for the test. I just feel that you are setting your instructors up for failure. When there is single word bullet point on the slide you NEED to put a simple definition with the word (on the instructor side) so when the instructor reads that word off we get some sort of idea when we see that word on the test. If I wasn't following along in my book to the slide I never would of thought anything of it. I understand we only have so much time in one day to cover all of the material but when we finish over one hour before the end of class I feel as I am being Robbed of my hard earned benefits from War to take this class. Yall need to do better as to help us learn not just throw piles of info at us with no understanding of that info. -Be excellent to each other!
