I liked that it was small class size that allowed us to discuss our personal UX challenges. The input from the trainer was of course helpful, but having the other students input was a benefit that I didn't expect. I am glad that didn't need to take notes on what resources are available (mostly for free) and that this was supplied post-training. This allowed me to really focus on the content and ask questions and have conversation rather than worrying about remembering how to reference material in the future. Also like the key info is found on the notes to a relevant slide and not just a long list of URLs on a one-pager. The instructor was also very open and responsive to questions.
