"After touring the classroom, we found that the amount of diagnostic modules and training tools have increased over the years. This has had a direct positive effect on the skill set of the technicians graduating from the program. With Stefan Schmitt as instructor of the program, we have noticed a great improvement in the graduating students' technical ability and overall enthusiasm in the work they do. This has led us to hire a graduate from the program and we couldn't be more pleased with the results."
