JMP Training Now On The Web

Having recently purchased JMP software to help his company conduct design of experiments, Dick Middleton, an engineer for Johnson Wax, was delighted to hear SAS Education offered the brand-new introductory course, Getting Started with JMP. In June, Middleton attended the course, and couldn't say enough about the quality of his experience. "The instructor's presentation skills were excellent," Middleton exclaimed. "I learned a lot not only from her, but from the questions and interaction I had with my classmates."
