[QUOTE]\nThe instructor is competent.\nThe course can be tailored to suit the needs of attendees's.\nThe attendees's have approximately the same level of understanding.\nThe course is not oversubscribed.\nThe course does not attempt to cram in too many subjects.\nThe course covers the subject matters in depth.\nThe other attendee's are seriously hot babes.[/QUOTE]\n\nI will agree with you on the first (Microsoft's work with Metrics that\nMatter and the compentency requirements should help to improve this, but\nnot everyone teaches MOC), fourth (I personally have a 12 student limit\nand prefer smaller classes), fifth (it should be only ONE subject IMNSHO)\nand sixth (while not always possible, I will agree to "as in depth as\npossible for the time alloted") items completely.\n\nI will disagree with the 2nd unless all students are coming from teh same\norganisation. If it is a public class then this is unrealistic as every\nstudent would have a different agenda and the course would be 8 years\nlong.\n\nThe 3rd is just silly unless you are teaching a class of one. Well, maybe\nnot, but it is difficult to find a group (again, unless they are from the\nsame organisation) that would have similar experiences and requirements\nfor something that is a new product. A good trainer should be able to\ngauge the audience and should be able to teach to the group as a whole.\nThere are instances however, where one student is so far behind\ncompentnecy wise that it grinds the whole group to a crawl. There are\nways around this, but since we are dealing with capitalism, salesmen will\nsell a course whether you meet the pre-req's or not. I feel your pain,\nbut that's life. If you have a good trainer, you will not notice this _as\nmuch_\n\nnow as for that last one, if all of the other attendees are hot babes,\nwhy would I want you messing up the view?
