She was very knowledgeable, funny and nice. She answered all of our questions and if there was something she wasn’t too familiar with she would point us in the right direction so that we can find the answers were looking for. I know a lot more now about lead base paint and the proper procedures to take when working on affected areas that have lead-based paint. Thanks Tiffany for a job well done!

I've taken a Lead Certification course before and the difference was night and day. The first course I took was dry, and physically painful to sit through. No comedy, no stories, nothing that would make the experience in any way memorable or enjoyable. This course wasted none of my time and was actually enjoyable at times. The instructor was very knowledgeable and actually seemed passionate about the subject. He cited historical impacts of lead that I had never heard of and were frankly fascinating (look up lead poisoning in ancient Rome). I'm not saying it was fun, there are obviously dry spots considering the subject, but it was definitely a pleasant surprise. HIGHLY COMPITENT INSTRUCTOR!

However, the instructor does a great job with it. John keeps the class moving. He goes above and beyond to try and keep everyone in the classroom engaged. He is the difference between having a horrible day trying to stay awake vs. actually paying attention and learning something. He also does a good job of making sure everyone is remembering useful information to pass the test.

I completed the written review at the end of class and turned into Mr. Schafer. I cannot count how many instructors I have had over the course of my education and career, or how many continuing education courses I have attended both in person and remote, but I can tell you that this was one of the best. People learn in different ways and this course provided book, screen, relational and hands on instruction to enable anyone that can see, listen and read the best chance at absorbing and learning the information presented. Mr. Schafer provided a heightened learning environment with story, visual demonstration, hands on training, humorous engagement and clear understandable oratory. Humor and story are always great ties to assist in learning new curriculum and Mr. Schafer engaged everyone individually and the group not only to hold attention but to confirm that the information was being absorbed. Mr. Schafer had a great personality, showed passion, humility and absolute knowledge of the coursework he was teaching. I would attend any class that John Schafer was teaching, he is a fantastic instructor. Kudos to John!

The content is very standardized and could be effectively delivered via remote online learning, providing greater access to people who may not be able to listen to a fast paced lecture and video presentation all day.

I took me a couple of pages in the manual to be able to follow the instructor and realize that he was basically reading through the important info on the pages. I think the hands on activities we pretty good. Definitely better than the ones we did back in 2010 or whenever I first took the course. The room was a bit cold in the morning rather warm in the afternoon. That may be out of the instructors control but I thought worth mentioning.
