What are students saying?
Real words from real customers!
Leaf Electrical Safety conducted a training seminar for our company. They were extremely thorough and knowledgeable when it came to the course material, as well as any questions the attendees had. I would recommend Leaf Electrical Safety without hesitation.
"I attended one of the Leaf Electrical Safety training sessions recently. Both Jon Travis & Yevgen Yevsyeyev led the instruction and facilitated the discussions. Having participated in a number of electrical safety seminars, conferences & courses I can honestly say this particular session was of great value. It contained a good mix of instruction & discussion, always on point, relevant material geared to the particular audience - the right mixture to keep the participants attentive & engaged."
