I recently took Willby Evans class on Carbon Monoxide @ Southwest Training Alliance. I thoroughly enjoyed the course! I obtained useful information that will carry on in our industry, and details that will keep my personal family and friends safe. 

Mr. Evans, conducted his class as an expert, providing his vast years of knowledge in an informal way that peeked our interest.  Class was full of his training, life experience, not just classroom text, while providing extensive education on this topic.  

We received a copy of his instructional power point to refer to in our future transactions. This was my first class at Southwest. I am looking forward to taking more.  I appreciate their take on CE to provide new approved courses for electives, providing other topics choices. The class certainly didn’t feel like 3 hours.


Thank you, for providing an informative class.
