Instructor was very knowledgeable in all subjects of the course and tailored his lessons and labs to the student's weaknesses. Very eager to help students in any way he can.

- Scott Masury
MA Army National Guard

I had an above-average instructor. Not only did he instruct, he mentored us with real-world experience. The knowledge he had of the applications was beyond comprehensible. Outstanding!

- Weston Flowers
Brooke Army Medical Center (CTR)

Course was outstanding as always. All material was covered well and all questions were answered. I am thoroughly satisfied.

- Bill Ross
Precision Fabricating & Cleaning Inc.

The class more than exceeded my expectations. The material was exactly what i needed to get my certifications and more. There was not one question the professor could not answer.

- George Embrey
IMC

He was very knowledgable in the course material and presented it in a very methodical way. The course materials were great and are resources we will use in the future.

- Ralph Polk
Brooke Army Medical Center (CTR)

Incredible instructor. The coursework covered 300 topics in 10 domains, and he was able to speak intelligently on all of them. Better, his teaching style was relaxed and informal, which lessened the feelings of impending doom about the exam we were about to undertake. He knew exactly which sections of the material to emphasize, when we needed a break, and in many cases was speaking ahead of the slides (he knew exactly what was coming up before turning the slides). Rare gem.

- Thomas Dunn
