SPSS 23.0 Statistical Data Analysis

I took the SPSS weekdays class at Option Train. The class was very informative and hands-on. I was able to practice in-class what I was learning. The instructor Farid provided great material, was engaging and challenged me to think analytically/outside the box as quite a bit of the material was analytical in nature. The class size was small and I had a lot of one on one attention. I am grateful to Farid and Option train staff for making my learning experience a worthwhile one.

- Andrew Bukuru


SAS 9.4 Statistical Analysis System

It was not too long ago when I was trying to find a good training institute to learn SAS that offers the course for a reasonable fee and has the personal touch in training. My quest ends when I found OptionTrain. My instructor Mr. Farid is extremely knowledgeable. He has a teaching style that is in-depth and engaging. The training contents/materials/projects are easy and practical oriented. It would be improper not to mention the post-training career advice and job referrals. I feel very confident that I'll not only be able to use what I learned in class, but feel that I can easily go beyond what was covered. I would highly recommend this course to anyone, especially the beginners, seeking a solid foundation in SAS and in data science.

Hi Keith, I took the pmp exam today and successfully passed. I wanted to personally thank you for being an awesome teacher and covering the concepts very well. A few take backs I remember: -only a handful of cost calculations -a lot of questions where understanding project management plan is needed. - project charter and initiation phase should be well understood -surprised with the amount of communications questions -a lot on risk -many questions where change control and change requests should be understood. Thank you again. Regards,

PMP Exam Preparation 5th Ed.

Hi Keith, I passed my PMP and just got my certificate. I wanted to thank you for preparing me so well. I couldn't believe the number of integration management questions. I would say over 20% of the test was about change control and management. 15% were about risk. 10% human resource (conflict resolution and the theories). Earned values questions were a joke. I didn't even have to touch a calculator. Thanks,

PMP Exam Preparation 5th Ed.

Hello All, Just excited to share the good news. I passed the PMP exam today at 1:18 pm. After the exam, I filled up the survey. After the survey, the CONGRATULATIONS popped out. The evaluation was also shown. I did very well above target in Planning but needs improvement at Closing. The rest were on target. The testing center printed a copy. Thanks to Keith's excellent instructional approach. I was able to highlight and emphasize what could have been overlooked. You inspired me to do some instructions/teaching someday. Thanks Farid for the software. I went through the software 1) knowledge areas after each chapter of PMBOK then 2) go through the processes (vertical) then 3) finished all the mock exams. I believe Fouzia and Florian can manage to take and pass the PMP exam. A lot of the questions were similar to the practice we have both at the review and at the software given. Many times as you go through the questions, you can already identify the knowledge area, the process, the ITTO even without looking at the choices. Wishing Fouzia and Florian the best. Now I can start applying for jobs. Kind regards

Dear Sir, Attending your Excel course was the best decision ever, after searching many other institutions that teach similar courses. The material prepared for the course, the use of time, plus the knowledge, skills and patience of the instructor (Lal), made the whole difference in the learning process. Classrooms are only for a handful of students at the time and in my case, I even got a one-on-one class! Thanks for making my registration and accommodation a smooth and quick process. For the price and the quality of the instruction, I think it is a great training place. I am going back for the more advanced level.

The client was very satisfied with my work and I would like to thank you for that. The training was very educational and the hands-on experience allowed me to learn the program efficiently. I absolutely loved the time spent learning at your training and I would look up other courses in the future. Thanks again and all the best wishes. Regards,

PMP Exam Preparation 5th Ed.

Don’t waste another minute studying on your own. I was doing it ‘on my own’ for over a year, reading a few study guides and watching a few online training videos, but what I was missing was a good old fashioned instructor-led classroom with real live students to interact with the content. That made the difference for me. The concepts were confusing and I couldn’t grasp them until I had the real-world examples and guidance from a real teacher in the classroom-setting. I happily drove over an hour each way to get to this course at OptionTrain because it was the best value I could find in all of the GTA!

PMP Exam Preparation 5th Ed.

Prior to sitting for the PMP exam, I researched the various study options. At first I used a number of textbooks and online resources; however I found it very difficult to maintain a structured schedule, find quality sample questions, and prepare for the exam. After extensive research I found Option Training’s PMP Exam Preparation course to be the best option. They were able to offer classes during the day and on the weekends, and the registration process was very easy and straight forward. Once the class started, I was very pleased with the instructor Keith who has a wealth of knowledge and provided insight into the exam as well as the day-to-day work of a project manager. The class sizes were ideal, the course materials were valuable and the instructions were on point. Most importantly Option Training provided extensive questions that I used during the last week of my studies to prepare for the exam. I am pleased to have chosen Option Training for my PMP exam preparation, as I was able to pass the exam on my first attempt. Regards,

Lal Fernando, I would like to inform you that after being out of school for 31 years, my experience with OptionTrain was beyond my expectations. The PMP course was very intense and challenging, but because of the way I was taught by Ravindra Singh I was so in my place that I quickly followed up with the Primavera 6 program. Ravindra is an exceptional teacher and I will return for more courses soon, as soon as I pass the PMP Exam. Your entire team along with Farid always eager to help made my time there rewarding. I will definitely refer people to you that I know! Thanks again,

It was obvious to me that you have a thorough knowledge of project management and Primavera P6 in particular. The lessons came across in a clear and easy to understand manner. I had used P3 for which I had been trained and P6 for which I had not been trained. You cleared up many areas in P6 I did not understand or had used incorrectly. I look forward to attending the PMI-PMP training with OptionTrain beginning in April 2015 and after receiving my PMI membership. I should get an answer next week.

SAS 9.4 Statistical Analysis System

I found the SAS course offered by OptionTrain to be very useful and a great way to lay a strong foundation towards using this advanced but very useful software, which is in great demand in the industry. The course instructor, Mr. Farid, was very flexible when it came to accommodating the course schedule and content around your comfort levels. He would like to challenge his students in a manner which encouraged one to go beyond just learning the syntax and code required for doing the job. He would really emphasis on practice and understanding what the code was really doing. He exhibited great understanding of the various applications of the software and based on your needs would tailor the best learning style and method for you, which I found to be extremely useful. I would highly recommend this course to anyone, in the analytics realms, who has no prior knowledge on how to use this software and wants to learn as much of the software in a short period of time with great guidance and applications to problems made by the course instructor.

MCSA: Administering Windows Server 2012

Windows Server 2012 MCSA I attended a 3 week Windows Server 2012 MCSA boot camp at OptionTrain to prepare for writing the 3 MCSA exams. OptionTrain’s course fees were much less than other training facilities. The courses contained the official Microsoft curriculum and had the matching Hyper-V virtual machine lab environment required to perform the lab exercises. The instructor, Lal, was knowledgeable and helpful in explaining many of the more difficult aspects of Windows Server 2012. Their location was convenient to get to, right next to the Eglinton subway station. I would definitely recommend OptionTrain for your Microsoft training needs.

Hi Farid, I am writing my testimonial in order to provide my feedback for optiontrain. (I'll begin explaining my experience at optiontrain when I actually called Farid to get information and details about PMP). I spent a lot of time in researching other institutes as well. But after calling optiontrain I decided to go for it, based on the fact that the course fee was most economical related to other institutions and none of them provide money back guarantee plus other benefits. I found my decision great after attending clases because the teacher's (Sir Jamal) methodology, way of teaching was extra ordinary. Moreover, I got continuous support, practice materials, guidance till I actually appeared and cleared the exam. I am very thankful to Farid and Sir Jamal for their support, courteous attitude, help and guidance.) Best Regards,

Setting the course at my own pace not only made it much more enjoyable, but also made for worthwhile learning. Thank you

Lal, as a certified MS trainer, has taught me multiple courses through my full year’s training program-Advanced Diploma in Multimedia & Digital Design. I Benefited from his knowledge and patience I sometimes asked Lal repeated questions and received detailed explanation as per how to understand a key concept or a method to solution. Lal didn’t mind going an extra mile to help students-he provided additional information after class and beyond the text content.

MCSA: Administering Windows Server 2012

Lal’s personal knowledge of the technologies he teaches makes all of the difference. He will expound upon a textbook item by referring to all of the facets involved, explain how they work with previously taught material, and relate them to real-world situations. It really gives you a clear picture of how all the parts work together... and it’s that real understanding that allows you to do well on tests. If it wasn’t for Lal’s accurate assessment of what I needed to do to pass the test I don’t think I could have prepared properly. He knows everything from the technology to the testing process, and that perspective really pays off. I came in with two expectations: To pass the test, and to really understand the content so I could use it in my daily work. Lal helped me achieve both of those, and I’m still using the notes I took from his course. Regards,

PMP Exam Preparation 5th Ed.

Some great news! I recently passed my PMP certification and wanted to share this news with you and the team at OptionTrain. I found the course materials and the training received during mid-August were instrumental in assisting in the task. As you know I spent some time reviewing the materials and the PMBOK following the training course, and I found the mock tests invaluable as final preparation for the exam. I wanted to reach out and thank you for the smooth administration around registration, making sure the PMBOK was available ahead of the “boot camp”, the great price for the training (real value for money compared to alternatives I was considering), the prompt starts and finishes for each of the 5 days, and the provision of an awesome trainer who’d “been there, done that”! The course was very well organised and I am sure I am not the only attendee who really appreciated the training lead (Keith Wright) and his wealth of experience which he shared to reinforce the points covered and leading to exam success. Once again, thanks for the support of OptionTrain in my professional development plans. I will happily recommend other professionals in my network who may be looking to acquire the PMP qualification make sure they contact OptionTrain. Kind Regards
