The instructor was very helpful with any questions that I had.

Delphi Bart F.

(What I liked most about the seminar was...) The openess and questions at
anytime. The trip to the manufacturing plant was excellent. The food was excellent. The class was relaxed and very informative.

Cami Automotive Terry O.

(What I liked most about the seminar was…) The proximity of the shop-we just
walked out to look at things that were otherwise difficult to explain. The hands on. Also the tours on Thursday were fantastic. Particularly the guys who toured us through the Winsor and Watertown facilities were extremely knowledgeable and
took their time.

Lockheed Martin Seth P.

(What I liked most about the seminar was…) Material and Content.

Lippmann-Milwaukee Anthony L.

(What I liked most about the seminar was…) Everything about it.
