The course far exceeded my expectations. The instructor was enthusiastic and kept us engaged by relating the material to our daily operations. I especially enjoyed the group work which allowed us to interact with co-workers we normally wouldn't see, discuss common issues and collaborate on a solution.

That class was very informative, knowledge based and thought provoking. Ian Shippley did a FANTASTIC job leading the course and keeping everyone on task. I would definitely recommend this course to colleagues.
