Training Testimonials

One of the best features of taking a class with CATI is the help provided for questions that come after taking the class.

Walter Bauer

Thanks so much for all the help with this class. You have really opened doors that were once closed.

Jim Enz

The course flowed well and the examples did contain a few "if at first you don't succeed..." type examples which made it a little more "real" than some other parametric software courses I've attended.
