What students are saying:

The instructor was really enthusiastic and I really enjoyed having him as my instructor. He was very knowledgeable and always ready to answer questions and assist. This was probably the best SAS training I've been to. Really appreciate it!! Thanks so much.
Rich is a truly fantastic educator and SAS SME. It was a pleasure to learn from his experience.
Rich is a great instructor. He always take the time to explain concepts with care and thoroughly. I actually took SAS Programming I with him and came back to take SAS Programming II with him for this reason!

What is your favorite training course and why?
SAS Macros: I'm able students more about topics they never even knew existed.

What is the best part about teaching?
I'd say two things: 1) I enjoying simply getting to know my students, where they're from and how they became involved in the SAS world; and 2) the satisfaction of teaching them how to do something they couldn't do before coming to class. Both are tremendously enjoyable and satisfying endeavors.

What is your favorite place or dream vacation destination?
I always enjoy visiting different places in Europe, especially the south and Mediterranean area.
