The content itself was very much on target in terms of my expectations for the course. Additionally the breadth and depth of experience provided by the trainer was phenomenal. The course material provided supplemented the in-person training very well.

The instructors knowledge of TOGAF and EA experiences make her the the perfect instructor. My previous TOGAF training and experiences provides me with a foundational understanding for the materials, and the lectures reenforced my current thinkings and practices. That said, I was quite comfortable with the allocation of time for topics and the length for course

Very good. Presenter did not simply present the slides, rather they provided useful context on the subject of the slides.
