"I was in your Water C & B Review class in the early part of August. I am happy to say that I passed with a score of 79. I did real well on all the subjects that you and Charlie taught us. I just wanted to let you folks know that if it wasn’t for the course, I wouldn’t passed liked I did. My next step is to go for my A Wastewater license next. Maybe I will get to take your review course for A operators. Until then take care and thanks to all at the TREEO Center."

"As always thanks- a- million. I can honestly say I would not have made such gains in my career in such a short time frame without the certification review courses." 

"I was in the A & B review class in early June...wanted to let you and Charlie know that I took the A test down in West Palm today and happy to say that I passed. I’ve taken this class and the C water class last year and passed them both the first time out. Just wanted to say thanks for the help."

"It must be luck or the course. Passed first time again. This time with an 84. Must be the training, luck doesn't last this long. Thanks guys."
