Amazing teacher! I was surprised at how fun learning about lead renovation can be! He did a fabulous job teaching the material and bringing creativity into the day.

The class was very educational and Scott the instructor kept me interested in the subject. The class time passed by very quickly, it didn't seem like a full day course.
By Jacqueline N N. - Attended class on May 20, 2013
The instructor was excellent and kept the class moving forward at a good pace.
By andrew p. - Attended class on May 20, 2013
Scott was thoroughly knowledgeable and presented the material in a manner that was loyal to the Socratic method but not the least bit dull. He sprinkled the presentation with interesting anecdotes about how he had experienced issues involving lead paint in his own professional life. This gave the material a real world relevance that was important.

I have a learning disability and normally study for a test to have it sink in. With Scott, I found he was very patient and thorough with his teaching, and received a good grade because of him. He missed his calling. Thank you and will highly recommend your company. B. Ramos

Whole Initial lead course was filled up with knowledgeable information's presented with highest grade of professionalism. great instructor.
By Larry K. - Attended class on May 18, 2013
The instructors were very pleasant and friendly and made us feel welcome, answering every question we asked. I was however disappointed with a lack of detail regarding certain procedures, and see items on the "shopping lists" in the manual that were not discussed, such as corn starch.There was very little hands on performed by students, mostly just the instructor showing us the physical procedures.

My experience at Seagull Enviromental Training was great, Dana my Teaher was a very knowledgeble instructor she solved all of my doubts and also is going to make herself and her team available for any future questions. They took the time to explain all the handson material as well as the manuals. If i have the chance I will come back for more of their training courses.
