Erica and Russell train using hands-on approach and a system of “hear- see - do”, this training approach allows students to hear what they are going to do, see what they are going to do, then execute on what was explained and demonstrated. They also continuously train with other industry experts, regularly challenging themselves to improve their own skills.
In a continued effort to bring the very best training opportunities to their students, they also love hosting other veteran industry instructors. This allows them to offer some great training opportunities for their students to learn from other experts whose home bases are out-of-state.
