I bet this is a great class, Chris. Our agency is on the second half of our biennium budget, so no more funding for another year.  :(
I will keep this is mind for the future though.

I'm not sure where you are in relation to Houston, but they will be hosting a class in early 2019.  Contact Jill Dupre for information.


Thanks,
Chris

I took Chris' abbreviated class at AFTE earlier in the month. It is an excellent class for newbies and seasoned examiners alike. I have a feeling that of the material that Chris goes over is not as emphasized in training as it needs to be. This class can help fill potential gaps in training.

For the seasoned examiners who did get proper emphasis on machining . . . this is an excellent review . . . and you will likely learn a thing or two that you did not know.

Great class . . . highly recommend.

I was also in the class during the AFTE Seminar. It was an excellent refresher on topics that we did cover in training and provided more detail on topics which we breezed over. All in all an excellent class and if there is more hands on in a more in-depth version the class can only be better.
