"Pretty much everything! When Iwan found out that I mainly worked with a different version of Dreamweaver than the course was going to use, he and the Media Training team were able to provide that version making the course even more targeted to my particular work environment. He was then great about explaining and showing the differences between the versions, so I now feel prepared for using wither version should he need arise. Absolutely first class course and going to recommend it to everyone!"
