Nev made everything relaxed and easy. Explained everything in a simple to understand manner.
–Steven H, Worksite
Practical assessment was very informative and easy to understand. Step by step procedure of performing the pre start-up, monitoring and shutdown is easy to learn and remember. Tasks and checks were easy to execute with the clear instructions from the competent trainer. Having increased my confidence in operating the boiler, this will help me perform my job safely and effectively.
–Lester P, Worksite
