The course instructor was excellent, but the training materials were poor. The workbook provided contained blurry black and white photos that had small, unreadable text. Pictures that required color contrast like thermal camera images looked like one big grey blur. Parts of the curriculum contradicted itself and the field test worksheet was unclear per the new standards. Half our class had a different field test guide and it caused confusion as to what was the correct test method. At least the instructor was able to find the correct information, but it took time and caused lots of stress amongst the candidates.

The class that I attended was very educational, informative and interesting. The instructor was top notch. It was a shame that I had to leave early due to a death in the family.
