Excellent course and very informative. Got a lot out of the knowledge and will get further guidance in my negotiations by having the ability to refer to the booklet provided.
The presentation was very good, the instructor was very helpful to clarify questions.
All seemed relevant – the olympics at the end was fun and going through the special provisions was really helpful.
I was so happy to see a NAESB specific course offered in Calgary – very applicable to my job. Thank you for putting on this course. The materials are extremely helpful.
