Right after I designed a fire sprinkler system I submitted the plans to two separate plan reviewers and both of the plan reviewers signed off on…read more

I learned a lot, it was fun and Rick is very skilled, passionate in what he does and a great teacher! Still amazed that thanks to modern technology (and a teacher who is willing to wake up at 6am on a Sunday because of time difference) I was lucky enough…read more
