Testimonials

Just wanted to thank you for coming up this past Sunday to provide training for our new personal escape systems. I could not be any happier with the instruction you and your team provided. In just a short period of time, you passed on your knowledge of these systems and gave use the opportunity to use them in several hands on practical evolutions so that we can feel comfortable to use them if the need ever arises.

I know those are only a few words, but that’s what comes to mind. … Read More

The truck company class was excellent this weekend. My guys can’t stop talking about it, as a matter of fact when we got back on shift Sunday evening we got the rest of the shift together and started drilling while everything was still fresh. We got some great pics and video that is going to be put into the training powerpoints for the rest of the department. The instructors were very knowledgeable and proficient in their skills and delivery of the materials that were covered. Thanks again for everything and stay safe.
