Thanks a lot for yesterday’s training. You were clear and to the point. The subject material makes sense and it was presented well. Your practical approach is refreshing and you see through the bs that is tossed around by the EPA, DOE, etc. And here is one for you, I don’t think that you charge enough for this service. I got a bargain at $200.00. I’m just sayin’.

Thanks for the class this morning. It was great being able to have just our small group in training this morning. Made it a lot easier and enjoyable to absorb everything that we had to put into our brains (which isn’t an easy task to do with our group!). The time just flew by and I appreciated your teaching style. If I ever decide to get more training into the lead business, I’ll definitely be looking you up. Thanks again!

Wow, I learned alot and was vary happy with the whole class. Ed was the most knowledgable trainer and the best class I have been in. He made it easy to understand and gave hand-on advice to make the job easier. Hey - also thanks for the tip on the rrp wipes/floor wipes/hand washing station (you should patent it).
