Participant Comments

  • This training experience was one of the best I have ever had. My co-workers strongly suggested that I take your training and now I know why. It was great and I will inform others that Blair Consulting Group is the best.
  • The focus on the needed attitudes for doing SAP work properly was helpful, your binder of materials is one of the best organized resources I have ever received at a workshop, examples of situations helped to break up the intensity of the information that we needed to address, and your offers of help, of your website, and of other resources were most reassuring.
  • Yes, I did pass my exam. I studied only from the notebook from your class. It certainly contained all of the information that is needed to study and pass the exam. The class was excellent, and the material is very easy to use.
  • Frankly, I had expected to be bored out of my skull for two days. I was pleasantly surprised to find a very interesting and informative 2 days. Interesting that I had been going about this all wrong, so now I can get going on the right foot.
  • I feel so much more confident about taking more SAP work after the training.
  • Although I had attended two other training programs prior to my SAP exam, this was without a doubt the most helpful for me in carrying out my role as a SAP.
  • I have gone to many seminars. Not one of them has helped me as much as this SAP training.
  • This training was the most informative and organized training that I have ever attended in my 25-year professional career.
