    “Great overall course. Fred Tanguay was a very knowledgeable instructor. Lots of real world experiences and stories.”

    “Fred was extremely knowledgeable; most instructors are not. He was able to go above and beyond my expectations when answering questions. The material taught was honest and contained just the facts. I would highly recommend this course.”
  • 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.
