  • March 5th, 2017 -

    Great tips on cleaning and perperation

  • August 26th, 2019 -

    thank you

  • August 15th, 2019 -

    Had trouble with the video sniping. Might have been my connection.

  • June 28th, 2019 -

    Thank you for the valuable information and technique of painting.

  • June 4th, 2019 -

    Would be nice if all of the slides were video

  • May 15th, 2019 -

    The the videos glitch too much. I made sure my internet connection was good and strong before starting. So I know it was the quality of the video.

  • May 10th, 2019 -

    Basic and thorough. Even after many years on the job I learned some things.

  • April 15th, 2019 -

    Good I would suggest less reading and more videos. thanks

  • April 11th, 2019 -

    Course was well done,very informative

  • March 21st, 2019 -

    It has a lot of useful information. It would be better with more video presentation than reading.

  • February 22nd, 2019 -

    There were just a few typo errors that caused a confusion as to meaning of thought. I added the word that seemed to fit the circumstance. I enjoyed the painting tip for meeting at walls or ceilings with a slight indentation mark to make the paint have a good cut line look. Also enjoyed the flow of information from point to point in logical sequence.

  • February 12th, 2019 -

    I found the topic useful and relevant

  • January 30th, 2019 -

    The course was very good. I would have liked more video.

  • January 20th, 2019 -

    More visual aids in form of pictures or videos.

  • November 2nd, 2018 -

    Video would have made this better

  • May 29th, 2018 -

    Didn't tackle paint sprayers much but good for general info.

  • May 5th, 2018 -

    Basic but thorough.

  • April 7th, 2018 -

    You seem to discourage the use of a sprayer. I was disappointed that this course avoided spray painting.

  • January 21st, 2018 -

    Your use of the word sealer in some sections confused me as to weather it was the same as primer or a different product

  • January 8th, 2018 -

    Good, basic painting information.

  • July 30th, 2019 -

    I think it was very informative and had a lot of good tips.

  • July 14th, 2019 -

    More video demonstrating techniques would be helpful.

  • March 20th, 2019 -

    Information is very good. Course presentation format could be improved

  • March 3rd, 2019 -

    Overview was great

  • February 8th, 2019 -

    As before, disappointed there is not a video presentation. It is unlikely that I will use these type of courses again. I do appreciate the written form but it is preferable if that is a printable version for review with a video the main format. I would of been willing to pay more for video version as described above as an option over the cheaper all reading version.

  • November 19th, 2018 -

    I didn't really have much to learn after already painting for 25 years.

  • June 20th, 2018 -

    A good general course with helpful trade craft revealed. Some of the information seems outdated with regard to the direction the painting industry is headed. Water based sealants and primers were not recommended much.

  • August 11th, 2019 -

    more video illustrations of various teqniques would be helpful

  • January 11th, 2019 -

    If you already know painting, you know this course.

  • June 10th, 2018 -

    Info is very basic. For me not much to offer.
