      Course was well delivered. Lots of information was received in a low stress, interactive environment.
    • Karalee Krekosk, Syncrude Canada
      These instructors are very knowledgeable. I wish that they were either 1) my journeymen in my apprentice years or 2) my electrical instructors for years 1-4. I feel like I could ask them anything electrical related and that they could deliver the correct answer, explained in terms anyone would understand.
