"An excellent course of study on an excellent document… My students were nervous
about testing, but we have had high pass rates and a lot of personal satisfaction
gained from participating in the training. Without question, the greatest strength
of the program is its relevance: it is used by our operators every day. The program
has given the entire facility a much higher level of common knowledge about terminology
and important concepts."
