It was an absolute pleasure taking your course. I don’t think I’ve ever learned so much in 3 days. 4 being execution of. Also, I’ve never retaken a quiz to get the material, not the grade. So, there’s that. I strongly recommend TekTone products, not only for their simplicity, but for the family of folks behind it. Attitudes and all. Thanks for that. For being recommend-able.

Hands-on Approach for Training
This has been by far the most informative training I have attended. The hands-on approach gives each tech a feel for the wiring and programming required for the TekTone system. I learn by studying reading material then applying what I have learned via hands-on testing. This class surpassed my expectations and I am grateful for Brian’s time and his training ability. I had 0 nurse call experience entering this class and I now feel I can support other techs working with this system.
