Mark is clearly a master of the craft and someone I would consider an expert. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of a slight lack of control of class behavior. I understand the background chatter of classmates helping classmates with course material. However, when you're in a small class and 2,3,4 people whisper/talk to each other non-stop it is really hard to hear/pay attention to the instructor. I understand some class participants are younger and maybe immature in a class setting, but for people who are trying to pay attention and learn, the distraction of whispering voices is annoying. Please don't take this review as a complaint. Please take it as constructive criticism moving forward. To Mark's credit he addressed the situation a few times, but the whispering never ended.

Would recommend longer breaks though considering courses are 9 hours per day during the middle of the week and people have work duties as well to take care of. Also recommend having the test the following week so people have an opportunity to study and retain information. Test requires study time rather than just listening to instructor.

He was easily accessible before and after class. He presented the material in a manner where even an inexperienced student could follow along and comprehend. There were several examples given with each scenario to help the class understand the concept as everyone learns at a different pace. Great jokes Darren, I don't care what people say!

He was very thorough, and hands on with many visual examples that made learning about WRT much easier to understand and interesting. He took the time to answer all the student's questions whether relevant at the time of class or not. He also made himself very available before and after class to review or answer any questions. I would definitely recommend Darren Foote as a teacher to anyone who takes the WRT class.

Darren Foote at LearnToRestore.com is knowledgeable, ethical, encouraging and energetic. He keeps the class engaged and provides the training necessary to pass the test. However he goes above and beyond. One of the other students in the class stated he got newfound motivation to do his job moving forward. Darren teaches the science behind restoration and will get you or your employees oriented to do the job right and avoid problems. I enjoyed him on a training a number of years ago and purposely looked for one of his classes first. I wasn’t disappointed. It also doesn’t hurt that he works daily with the IICRC.

Helped our class understand the course in a professional manner, and being that it was a lot of information to take on in just 3 days, he slowed it down just enough for our minds absorb, yet also stayed on track.

I spoke a lot in his class and he always heard what I had to say and either acknowledged or corrected something I said. Which in turn helped clarify some things. Anyways highly recommend and don’t be like me and show your worksheets in the camera for your test. I didn’t and followed the rules per iicrc and there was about 7-9 questions where I could have really used the psychometric chart.

Even though I have nearly 5 years experience, I learned a lot more from him then I thought I would. He answers everyone’s questions, broke everything down made it simple to understand. And also gave some tips from his own personal experience. Which helps. Hopefully, anyone that takes the course in the future has Mr. Dooley as an instructor as well. I was able to take great notes to study. He just seems like he cares about spreading his knowledge so others can gain and further their experience in this industry. I’m very happy with the way he teaches. Hopefully he is my instructor for the next certification in the near future. He clearly knows his stuff. Very smart individual.

Gary the instructor was knowledgeable and had many good stories relating to the material. Unfortunately our class started late on the first day as the wrong zoom link was sent. The wrong workbook was sent as well. The amount of times people were told to be on camera started to be cumbersome. The IICRC was always the reason that people had to be on camera (not sure this is necessary). Overall good experience
