Quotes from previous workshops:
A comprehensive approach. The problems, the equipment and solutions all presented in a what
really works presentation… Not just theory. If you want to learn about solving RFI/TVI
problems, this workshop is a must.
We were having a very difficult time solving noise effecting our BPL system. Mike put an end
to our locating difficulties. Now we're locating them with ease.
Very informative. Mike took a highly technical, complex subject and made it simple and easy
to understand. It made me realize we can do much more for our customers.
The entire class was great. It was great to have instructors who not only knows the material,
but also works the job full time.
Mike is very organized and keeps you interested. A very good and inspiring speaker.
Since the last workshop, my job has become a real pleasure, instead of the "dreaded" assignment.
It was even better this time.
The guess work and lengthy work requests are a thing of the past, quick and accurate locating
from now on.
Wonderful and in depth information for finding and eliminating power line noise sources.
The course and instructor is A+. This was the most cost effective training we've ever had.
There wasn’t a tired eye in the class. It was extremely interesting.
The most applicable training we have ever had. We've had the equipment and now we know how to use it.
Mike was able to communicate to the engineers and linemen, covering the theory and practice
I was amazed at the speed in which Mr. Martin located the sources of our complaints.
The most beneficial training available, handouts, class & field materials, and a
certificate of completion. Lunch provided both days.
You're encouraged to bring your own locating equipment.
