"The 'Introduction to Java Programming' 3 day course far exceeded what I expected from an introduction to Java course. The best part of the class would have to be the genuine enthusiasm that the instructor, Jamie, had for the subject. His enthusiasm along with his wealth of knowledge made the classes more practical since he was able to address specific questions. Jamie also made himself available for addressing any additional questions that we had on subjects that were not addressed in the class, like threads. This course filled in things that I was needing, like using Eclipse more effectively which will help me be more productive than I was able to do on my own."
"I would like to take another course from Batky-Howell if time permits that address using Java’s awt/swing and jdbc modules. Jamie said they have an intermediate course which covers this. Even if I come to know all the Java libraries better, I would like to attend just to get Jamie’s thoughts on these."

"I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge a JOB WELL DONE at Batky-Howell in meeting the NAS organization training needs. I cannot tell you how many other training facilities I have personally visited for training, where I didn't get much from the time and money spent on so-called 'training.' I have taken many classes from Batky-Howell. I was able to take the new knowledge set and apply it in the work environment immediately. What a wonderful concept! Teach me what I need to know to do my job more effectively and efficiently!"
"I am proud to have attended Batky-Howell classes in the past. I look forward to many of the employees within our organization obtaining the excellent training provided by Batky-Howell. I personally look forward to building a strong and lasting partnership/relationship with Batky-Howell."

"I would like to take a moment to let you know what an outstanding job your organization has done. We have been delighted with the quality of training that Batky-Howell has provided. Batky-Howell remains a favorite of ours for training. This is because of their friendly, knowledgeable instructors who teach curriculums that are no-nonsense and no fluff. Setting up classes has been an effortless task. Our engineers and management staff have had nothing but good things to say about the training they have received from your establishment."
"Our account manager has been excellent to work with. He has always been there to answer our questions, help us determine what training is best for us, and do whatever is necessary to meet our needs. He is very professional and efficient. Aside from that, he sure is a pleasure to talk with!"
"What Batky-Howell does better than other training vendors that we have worked with is that they understand the needs of the industry and their customers. The content of the courses is always at the appropriate level and the instructors are educators, not just facilitators. Students are excited to go to the courses and walk away with a new-found understanding of the subject matter. The added value that Batky-Howell provides is why we will continue to call on Batky-Howell for future training services."
"I wanted to let you know what great experiences I've had working with Batky-Howell as one of our education vendors. First, every time I've scheduled a class to be held in-house, I've been given a 'heads up' on the instructor and what their background is. Materials are always delivered early and clearly marked, which has been a great help when there have been two or more classes being taught concurrently. Also, our contracts for onsite classes are easily understood, usually comparable to prices offered by other vendors, and have always been done in a timely manner."
"Another positive we've experienced is the onsite course curriculum. There have been several occasions in which we've made requests to have specific things included, excluded, or even combined with another class. In most instances our requests have been granted immediately and done exactly as we've asked. I've had several coworkers, including upper management, comment on the flexibility of Batky-Howell and how accommodating they have been."
"Next would be the quality of training we've received from Batky-Howell, both in public and private classes. I often receive comments from people who have participated in classes from different vendors that the Batky-Howell courses are some of the best they've attended. One specific example would be the Fundamentals of Software Testing class which we've brought in-house several times due to the course content and knowledge of the instructors. Having certified instructors for different types of courses (i.e. Java) is a positive factor as well. Many of our technical people have backgrounds in the course(s) being taught so it's nice to know we're getting instructors who should be truly knowledgeable in the subject."
"Lastly, and very importantly, is OppenheimerFunds' Account Manager. His ability to work with his group at Batky-Howell to ensure timely responses for contracts, curriculum, etc. to the satisfaction of everyone involved is fantastic. There have been several occasions when I've relied on his organizational skills to help straighten out issues involving cancelled classes or credits held for public courses. He has also been more than willing to suggest vendors who might offer a class needed although Batky-Howell doesn't offer that particular course. I appreciate the confidence of knowing whatever we've asked of him, he's done his best to help. His positive nature and upbeat attitude are always refreshing, as well as his ability to be friendly yet professional at all times. I enjoy working with Batky-Howell and look forward to continuing to do so in the future."
