"The content and instructors were excellent. TREEO is far and above the best available training for our industry."

"Ron teaches the course materials in an easy to understand format."

"I've been to a hundred classes in 3 different states.  Ron and Phil were the best teachers I've ever had, bar none.   Ron especially seems like he genuinely cares."

"I can honesty say I would not have made such gains in my career in such a short time frame without the certification review courses."


"I learned what to focus on while studying for the exam-the need to know information."


"This course really tied the math into the troubleshooting process and made it more applicable on the job!"


"The training materials were superb!  The computer lab provided realistic and hands on activities that will be useful as I prepare for the "A" license exam."
