"Tom & Chad were by far the best instructors I’ve had of any of the trainings I’ve attended.  They do a great job of presenting new and unfamiliar material in a practical & easy to learn way.

What I liked most was that they keep the environment light-hearted and even comical so that the techniques are simple and easy to learn.  You can really tell that they not only know what they are doing (and are experts in their field) but they also love what they are doing.  It really shows in their teaching style."
