My training philosophy is all about understanding the big picture. It’s not enough to know which buttons to push, you need to understand why and how the system works in total. As an instructor I focus on helping students understand how and why the system works the way it does, and once that is understood, it makes every program that follows a little less intimidating. I enjoy showing students a command that will save them untold amounts of time and watching their eyes light up in recognition."
