Thank you for the excellent training and advice you provided to Yankee Atomic Electric Company for a site high angle rescue team. The training provided was timely and site specific. The training program you developed addressed our specific objectives and allowed us to form a rescue team that would be capable of providing scene stabilization and removal of an accident victim from the top of our containment structure or any roof area at the facility. Your program was tailored to meet these objectives and we appreciate the time and effort you provided to allow us to form this team in such a short period of time.
Everyone who took the training was completely satisfied and felt confident that if there was an accident they were prepared to respond. To an individual they expressed that your training was some of the best that has been provided since working here.
We also appreciate the advice you provided in the purchase of equipment and recommended changes to the facility. Your experience and expertise in this area was apparent to all of us.
You can feel free to use us as a reference at any time.

“This was truly one of the best weekend courses I’ve ever attended. Your expertise and hands-on approach was extraordinary. You clearly know your material “cold” and have a great rapport with your students.”
