Just took the CPL class today! First I have to say the team was very friendly and professional. It was a great class and would recommend to anyone interested in obtaining a CPL. Went through all the materials thoroughly and was very patient with some who needed help. Safety was a priority and the team was on top of keeping everyone in check!

Thanks David, it was a day and money well spent!
