"Thank you so much for such a detailed and well-thought-out engaging course. I found it challenging and rewarding. I spent 33 years in the aviation field, and at 58, I thought I would challenge myself, and this course certainly delivered. I've already passed my EPA 608 universal and EPA 609 for MVAC. Now, it's time to review and take those ER tests and then off to see what lies ahead." - Dante
