Course Information

Our professional level programs certify that a student has passed at least two courses in a sequence and received instruction on techniques from the installer level up through the masters level. certified professionals will have received a much more rigorous technical education than the minimum industry standard. Professional courses allow a student to become a master technician starting with little-to-no knowledge. Companies wishing to train new personnel may wish to take advantage of these sequenced packages.
