This is what the students had to say:
Will replace our low end training we have been doing.
I think the materials used in the process reinforced the concepts nicely.
K.D. ( Lt. Dillon) Dave Bissonnette and Megan Thul all top quality instructors with keen ability to transfer knowledge of material.
Excellent class!
Great PowerPoints, not too long. The binder is a great idea.
Instructors have extreme knowledge of the program and teach tremendously well.
I will utilize more moving in engagements.
