I have more confidence...

The course was very good at speaking of topics that can get quite technical in a way that most would find understandable. The topics within the course are very relevant to the project I am on and now I feel like I have more confidence with being the environmental compliant inspector. Who can ask for much more than that!?! No complaints.
