I really enjoyed & learned a lot in this class. I knew a little about asbestos but not what I learned in the past 3 days.
Good knowledge and skills.
Excellent class, makes it very easy to understand and follow for anyone, regardless of material knowledge.
Material presented well with good anecdotes/stories/references.
Honestly entire class was great. Frank knows his stuff and is entertaining.
Great real world experiences
Training manual seems repetitive. Hence jump from section to section for similar subject matter.
