What students are saying:

I think that this was a great session! I learned a lot and will certainly be able to take and apply what I've learned from the session to my work.
Great instructor! Everything was clearly explained and all questions were answered.
Mark was fantastic, I am extremely happy with my this course offering & the knowledge I gained!!

What is your favorite training course and why?
The SAS Macro language is my favorite. This class is a lot of fun to teach because there are so many useful programming techniques that can be applied to a wide variety of business problems.

What is the best part about teaching?
I really enjoy helping students learn to use new tools and techniques that will help solve problems. It's always a thrill to explain a concept and see the light bulb go on and to feel like students have walked away with a new understanding of programming.

Do you have any hobbies, favorite activities, or hidden talents?
Love to ski Colorado!
