"Jim's method of training was very informative, and he was able to keep the attention of our crews.  He is a professional speaker and obviously has tremendous knowledge of torch applied roofing systems... Many of my men came to me the following day and stated that they really did get a lot out of the training. Having field personnel recognize the value of the training is outstanding.  I would highly recommend contacting Jim if you are looking for CERTA training.
