    So the GF and I took the weekend class to get our license and we both passed thanks to the guys here. They run a good class sticking to the subject matter you will see on the test and do a good job of making sure to not clutter the class with info that does not pertain or help you to pass. They have a number of demos of basic equipment and not so basic too. Food and drink were provided and the environment was layed back and low pressure. With a little effort in reading the text and a day and a half I am sure that these guys will get you there easily.

    Thanks again guys for you kind efforts!

    Mike and Gaylla
