â€œThis seminar is an excellent review for the practicing entertainment electrician as well as a primer for the aspiring electrician,â€? says Cadena. â€œIt has enough detail and information to challenge the experienced among us but presented in such a way as to convey useful concepts to the less experienced with a minimum amount of math and complexity.â€?
Former attendee Tony Hansen, LD/systems consultant with Techni-Lux, says of the course, â€œI learned more usable and appropriate knowledge here than I did in four years of college.â€? Another attendee, Jason Gay, said, â€œThe class addressed issues we run into daily. I am more confident in my ability to work safely and direct others in their work.â€?
