From Our Customers

“I had the opportunity to attend the Basic Rigger/Signal Person Train the Trainer course in Houston last week. I write this with the intent on complimenting your instructor. Mr. O’Connor held our attention. He relayed valuable information in a respectful, polite and confident manner. I learned a great deal. In no small part this accomplishment was made easier because of Mr. O’Connor’s talent and knowledge of the material. I will recommend using your services in the future.”
