Excellent in house and on line instruction. Convenient multiple locations. Online could be done in any time (mostly) some were scheduled. The exam for certification takes 4 hours. Required calculator and good math and word problem solving.

Great instructor, fast course. You must star focus to complete all off the course work, fun class overall. Only thing is I didn’t go into the field and I didn’t receive extra money.
