First of all the phone conversions with Ellen and Brenda were absolutely delightful. Rarely have I had the pleasure to deal with such totally professional and able persons like you two. Courses were easy to understand. I learned a lot about Energy design as well as the new products for framing.  I would unconditionally recommend this course and your company to anyone. Keep up the great work and keep me on your mailing list!
