The hands on practical component was excellent with three car bodies to practice on giving us plenty of training on extraction techniques. Ashley provided a great learning environment with plenty of real life examples delivered with a very good teaching style.

It’s been many years since I have done this course. I really enjoyed learning how techniques have changed from what I was originally taught. Steve and Travis were very approachable and their knowledge of the subject matter was outstanding. I will be recommending this course and your company to others that are contemplating doing this training in the future.
