Please express our thanks and gratitude for the training last week.  The home-cooked meatballs and hamburgers were really great touch!  We hosted a CEC (continuing educational class) on Mold yesterday with over 50 participants.  I was able to assist the instructor on several things just learned from the class we attended.  We had agents, adjusters, and property managers who were thrilled with the information provided.  There really is a growing hunger for good educational information on this topic. The training has been beneficial in building credibility for our company when helping homeowners and business owners with mold issues.

I want to thank you for everything. I had a wonderful experience.  I can't stop talking to everyone in the company of the education I have gained from regulations to safety to proper policy and procedures. I hope that one day I can implement at least one thing that I have learned from your class to help make a difference in company.
