Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know what a FANTASTIC job your instructor did today.  He has given his presentation to over 300 wage employees.  He is very thorough in presenting.  He is also very polite and have been extremely flexible throughout the day.  We look forward to having him back soon to provide more quality training to our employees.

The EI Group is exceptional in its service, products, support, and people! Our local DPR Construction employees were very fortunate to receive FA/CPR/AED training from Amy and Cary Heggen at our regional office in Morrisville. I received nothing but positive feedback for the Charlotte trainer at our Forest City jobsite, too. All of the comments reflected upon the training being above and beyond anything they had experienced before.
