TESTIMONIALS

Derek Birkham, Ile-A-La-Crosse School Division

At the end of the SRT1 course, I had one point to clarify. The instructors, Chris and Garth, stopped their packing up and took the time to demo and help me practice the skill. The course was over and the parking lot was half empty and they still took the time to help me learn!
