      The professor Steven Romero is a good person but a terrible teacher. He's enthusiastic about the material but will go on speaking about his job or some other random crap for at least 30 min at a time, Half the labs did not work, resulting in us having to spend 30+ min extra on labs just to troubleshoot them. They had the same instructor teach 3 sections in a row, where as they advertise different experts for each section. After all this was brought to the attention of the directors of the program I was denied a refund despite clearly not getting what I was paying for nor what was advertised. This program does have a few good professors, but the experience, and the cost of $16,000 is not worth it, especially when no certification test are offered or included in the cost to go.
