I thought this was the best course I have had for inspection. (The Instructor)
verbally explained item(s) I didn't understand. I think the hotel arrangements were excellent and travel was easy.

(What I liked most about the seminar was…..) How parts are made, and that’s why you don't have it on the shelves. Thank you very much, it was great here.

Being able to get out on the shop and view parts that we learned about. (The
instructor) was great.

Although the material in the course was technical, it was presented so that it was not difficult to understand.
