The class overall was in depth and provided a significant amount of information both for legacy and new systems. The content associated with changes was key especially the information for new codes i.e temperature of areas where security video wiring is run and the new codes associated with jacketing for installation in these areas

This was an excellent well prepared group of classes that target our industry very well. Extremely helpful to be able to take classes ondemand/online, especially being from NY, driving to the in person classes is very time consuming.

Good review of the material as always. Maybe some quizes would be good to keep us on our toes.

DAVID C

This class was great, as besides reviewing content I have been thru a hundred times, it is updated with new changes in code and thought on various parts of the installation and code process, very very good

John F

The class is well done and methodical. Bob gives real world examples and explains everything in detail. There was some overlap between the Barrier Free Code and the ADA; however the distinctions were also specific. The detail on smoke detection and the changes that have evolved through the years - especially over the last few years was covered very well.

Vito B

I like that I could take the class at my leisure! All my questions were answered.

This class is fine but it would be nice for NJ to require some different courses not always the same required.

The program needed some modifications to become user friendly - and to become comparable as a required training platform to many other programs for the alarm industry that have been around for some time.

James F

As always the information is beneficial. I recall some a lot of the information from from past classes but it a good refresh.
