“The quality of the class was great. I learned so much in a short period of time that will definitely help me greatly going forward as a home energy auditor. Mike was a great trainer! He was always there if you had a question (during training as well as after hours). He was ready to help you understand what he was teaching and really wanted us to understand the how and why of what we were being taught. This training was the longest and most thorough training I have ever attended. Compared to other trainings it was very informative and well timed.”​
