  • Great course and instructor

    Five Stars
    Review from Mike Fettner

    I've taken several courses with Critical Path and each one has always been educational and full of excellent material. Critical Path has extremely knowledgeable instructors, with real world experience, and Ted did a great job delivering this course. Although SharePoint 2016 development hasn't changed all that much since 2013, I did learn some new things (particularly with Angular, MDS, and app development) and feel what I learned in the lab will help with my future work. This is a great course for anyone new to 2013/2016 development, or anyone looking to sharpen their skills with the latest development techniques.

  • Step Up Your Game with Power BI

    Five Stars
    Review from Maria Alt

    I took this class remotely and it was just what I needed to help me with a current project I am working on. Ted is a very knowledgeable and patient instructor. He really knows how to convey all his techy nuggets of wisdom into digestible bits of practical application. To give you my background, I am Project Coordinator for our North American field training programs and not primarily focused on business analytics. Recently, I have been asked to develop visual report analysis for our team and have been limited to just using Excel. What I've learned in this class will enable me to take business reports to a whole new level of data import, analysis, visualization and distribution. We were the 2nd offering of Power BI training and I am looking forward to all the updates in the future!

  • Great class!!!

    Review from J.R.

    The training was great!! It was very relevant to me as a SharePoint developer so much so that I was able to immediately apply what I had learned on a project that I'm working on.
    Keep up the great work!!

  • Wonderful Office 365 Development Course

    Five Stars
    Review from Evan Lombardi

    Not only does the Great Office 365 Adventure cover a wide array of topics, which will be useful to even the most experienced of SharePoint developers, this five day course also provides labs and countless resources/examples for each module discussed. Nice mix of not only important but practical topics for developers new to the Office 365 environment.

    Excellent course!! I highly recommend for anyone looking to learn cloud / client side SharePoint development!

  • GSA is an Excellent Course!

    Review from Charles Phillips

    As the title says, this is an excellent course! Ted's way of explaining things made topics that might otherwise seem difficult clear and easy to understand. I particularly enjoyed the sessions on AngularJS and MVC and they both have the potential to greatly expand my development skills and it has inspired me to push my learning in both areas. My thanks to Ted and all at CriticalPath!

  • Power BI: Blowing Minds Daily

    Five Stars
    Review from Danielle Hawn

    This is the third training I have attended with Ted instructing. HIs personality really shines through in the training and there is never a dull moment, I always look forward to coming back.

    This was the first offering of the Power BI training, there were some minor hiccups with a few of the labs but Ted was able to lead us through the correct procedure. His expertise and passion for BI really stood out to me. He is knowledgeable and always available to troubleshoot and talk through solutions. The training learned here and the tools that I have brought back to demo to my organization are blowing minds daily! Thanks Ted and the rest of the team at CPT!

  • Passed SharePoint Certification

    Review from Eddy

    This course was very beneficial in upgrading my skills towards the App model and Office 365. I went on to pass a certification exam on the SharePoint MCSE track where they had unexpectedly asked many Office365 questions that were luckily covered in the class labs.

  • Good O365 Development Class

    Five Stars
    Review from Phillip Carson

    I attended the first delivery of the Great Office 365 Adventure and it was well worth it. The detail is incredible and if you can't keep up (as I sometimes had difficulty doing) you don't have to worry as the lab instructions in the book are step by step. I've used my original Critical Path book more than once to create apps that I hadn't tried in a couple years.

    Ted is a training machine, very excited about the material and never tires of answering questions. Critical Path is always where I look for quality SharePoint training.

  • The Great SharePoint Adventure 2013 helped me a lot to get clarified on the basics

    Review from Selva Jagen

    Even though I have been working with SharePoint for a long time, I had so much confusion about the App development concepts and the new Microsoft Strategy about On-Premise / Cloud. I have been reading about them for quiet some time. But I didnt get a clear picture from the documentation I have read so far. The Great SharePoint Adventure 2013 helped me a lot to get clarified on the basics, especially what to do and what not to.

  • Great class!

    I just completed this class last week in Tampa with instructor Ted Pattison. Great class!

  • I thought Ted was extremely knowledgeable.

    Review from Travis Patton

    I thought Ted was extremely knowledgeable. Much more so than any other training that I have attended where the instructor was basically reading the book to me and preparing me for a Microsoft Cert at the end.

  • This course helped me to get my Sharepoint 2013 core area certification.

    Review from Ganesh Kolappan

    This course helped me to get my Sharepoint 2013 core area certification. Ted Pattison answered all my questions and he has provided with problem areas and soltuions to tackle that with his experience in different industries. The course material is good and lab exercises are comprehensive for developers. I would recommend taking this online course.

    Took the SharePoint 2013 Administrators Boot Camp in Tampa. The weather, facility, and city is great. The instructor was incredible (a SharePoint Rock Star). I am so grateful I was able to take this class, it was awesome!

    I took this class without much knowledge of SharePoint 2013, but after this class I was able to successfully pass the Microsoft SharePoint 2013 70-331 exam on my first try. Great class!

    Review from Beth Morrisey

    The course was very comprehensive. Ted Pattison demonstrated in depth knowledge of the subject area. He was easy to understand and follow. He did a nice job jumping from the slides to demos. He fielded questions and helped answer questions about the SharePoint environment configuration. I would recommend this course and this instructor without reservation.
