She gave real life examples of the dangers of lead that made us truly understand what it is. Even the hands on parts were fun where we got to build our own vertical containment and more.

I thought I knew the general info about the dangers of lead, but this class really opened my eyes. The fact that every other industrialized nation on the planet outlawed lead paint in the late 1800's but the US kept it until 1978 is crazy. Great information, well presented and I'm glad I have taken the class.

Incredibly knowledgeable, Owen was able to cover a gamut of information in just a few hours. Most importantly I learned to always be aware of the quantities of lead paint in the old homes I may be asked to demo, as that is my main business, grading, demo, walls and custom pools in the San Diego area. The fines are a bit too much for me to pay, so I would rather "pay" attention than pay a fine ! So that one instruction will always be in my mind, as will much of the rules and regulations to conduct my business.

This was my 3rd time taking the class. 2010 was good, 2015 was a quick refresher & was ok, but 2020 was a very good learning experience. The video with Jim Stump giving a brief history of the damages that lead has caused in the US was an eye opener which helped set up the stage for needing lead to be removed from paint & gasoline & why lead dust & chips containment & clean-up is so important & helped make the class so much more informative & enjoyable. Hats off to setting this up in this manner. Esther was very knowledgeable on the subject & is very good at teaching when demonstrating with the hands on portion of the program. Thank you for providing this knowledge to the rest of us.
