My son-in-law heard about A2D through a co-worker. He knew I wanted to take classes sooner rather than later (after COVID) so told me about them. I’m glad he did. The six hours of online training was interesting and very thoroughly executed. I didn’t doze off once! LOL! The instructors were very laid back and easy to follow, adding real live examples where possible. Made the material very easy to apply. The two hour range session was just as great! The instructor was patient for newbies; and adjusted to those who were more experienced. Trainers were very personable and made me feel they genuinely cared about my technique. To me, they earned every one of the five stars!

If you've ever taken a class where you sit down and are talked at the entire time, you struggle to focus, and feel like you're wasting your time. You will will not feel that way about this class. Kevin and Alisha are very passionate about this and it shows! 10/10 would reccomend.
