This message is for anyone who might be nervous about attending Amanda’s class…it is very clear from the beginning of the class that Amanda does not want you to be stressed out. Amanda demonstrates and then walks you thru the different tasks that you may have to do or assist with. I’m normally a quiet person but even I felt comfortable enough to ask questions when I had them, she does not make you feel like you are irritating her, she is very friendly and smiles a lot even though the responsibility of assisting someone is very serious! Don’t be nervous about taking this class because you learn a lot in a stress free, helpful environment!☺️ Thank you Amanda!

I was feeling a little anxious about the DCW Challenge Test, but when I arrived at the training site on November 2nd, Heidi put all of the participants at ease. She reviewed some of the items that would be on the test, answered any specific questions that we had, and she did a great job at explaining the hands-on items that we were tested on. She taught by example and then observed us as we demonstrated what we had learned! Just thought you should know about the great job she is doing!

I was very impressed, not just with the administrators, staff, and trainers, but the program is excellent. I highly recommend everyone take the course from Practical training Solutions. They are patient, and are willing to take the time to spend with you, answer any questions or concerns you may have.
