I was nervous about the amount of information I had to learn in such a small amount of time but Todd did such a great job at keeping a relaxed classroom and taught the material at a great pace. I plan on taking more classes in the future and will most certainly be attending Everblue.

   By Eric N. - Attended class on February 24, 2014

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.

Art Pakatar was an excellent instructor, his real world experience was very beneficial in understanding the building science concepts.

   By Kurtis B. - Attended class on September 30, 2013

I would defiantly take another one.

   By Rashed A. - Attended class on June 10, 2013

I really like to get more courses with Mr. Art.I like his way of teaching and appreciated all the efforts and times he did during the course.

   By Cary T. - Attended class on February 25, 2013

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.
