"I've been using Qube for a number of years now, and I can say that I know it quite well. But even for an administrator like me, I found the QCA training to be quite informative and a really good forum for picking up things that I missed in the past and discussing different ways of implementation and optimization. I would recommend the QCA to anybody who wants to start learning Qube and even to those who have already been using it for a while. I'm sure that you, like I did, will pick-up some new insight while you're there! Thanks PipelineFX!"
