What do students say about RE Mason Training?

Instructor was very knowledgeable of the course content and conveyed the information in a way that was easy to follow.  He kept the class interesting by using real world applications.

As usual, RE Mason is outstanding at taking care of the student.  From registration thru the end of the week, administration was always helpful and concerned.  My highest praise and thanks to the entire training staff.

I would recommend RE Mason and Emerson training to others. They offer very informative training and they are very nice and polite people.

RE Mason provides some of the best training it has been my experience to attend. Always professional and very well prepared.

The instructor was very knowledgeable on the subject.  He was very effective at providing more in depth insight rather than reading presentation slides.  Students were engaged and the instructor did a good job of asking how certain applications were used at our facilities and molding his presentation to our needs.

The training was very informative. I really enjoyed and learned from the hands-on labs.

Excellent course.  I came into the class with basic understanding of AOV’s.  I now feel like I have a good foundation on their operation.

There is no other place I would rather take a training class.  Everyone at RE Mason is absolutely great.

This is an excellent course for people who are just beginning to work with boilers or have worked with them for years.

Absolutely the best class I could have attended.  Great deal of information.  I look forward to attending more training at RE Mason.

I wish I could have taken this class earlier in my career.
