I believe this is a great course for users at any level. I had never used the Visual Editor or MCNP before the class but the curriculum is so thorough and so well laid out that I was able to keep up with users with many years of experience, who also expressed considerable satisfaction with the class. The best part is that the class can be taken again and again after you leave using the supplied manuals, exercises and software. The tools from the class become a valuable resource for general use of the Visual Editor and MCNP. It was probably the best week I have ever spent learning anything associated with the nuclear industry.

I found the course useful since I have always been interested in finding out how many of the features of the code work…now that I have gone through the training, I am empowered to explore the code to the fullest ability and also demonstrate its usefulness to my colleague…I am sure more will be interested in this kind of training. Randy was fantastic and kept his energy up through a grueling week. He was also a wonderful host who treated us with a lot of humility and kindness (was even able to pick and drop some of us at the airport). Thank you Randy!

First of all, Randy is definitely the type of person you will want to learn from for a class like this. His personality and teaching method ensure that you are going to fully understand what you are doing and catch on quickly. Second, the power of the visual editor is unbelievable; you will easily see just how much faster it allows you to create any code whether simple or complex. Finally, the advanced class is great. You get to see the overall picture on why the visual editor is a useful tool and how it integrates with other programs to allow you to do very complicated things in the shortest amount of time. With what I have learned, I can safely say that I no longer consider code creation to be of a comparable time length to problem setup and output analysis. Simply put, the time I will spend writing code is now insignificant to what I already spend in preparation and analysis of a problem.
