The course material was excellent! I found that it is important to apply yourself and then you’ll learn. There was a very good balance of theory to practical. I thought the level of detail in the course was perfect, in fact nothing would need to be changed. The instructor’s knowledge of the subject matter was excellent. It was nice to know that he worked in the field and knows what it is like at 2 a.m. on service. The quality of the training environment was safety enforced. I recommend this G1 GAP course for everyone, regardless of work experience. I don’t know what I would change!

The course material was very well prepared and balanced. I found that the course was very in depth on service aspect, which is 100% relevant, as we are a service based company. The course was very well organized, taught at an appropriate pace, communicated and presented clearly. The training environment is the best I’ve seen and there was lots of equipment to work on. Overall I felt that this was the best course I’ve attended! It was taught service based, incorporating the theory to the service.

The G1 GAP course is excellent. I rate it 5 out of 5 in; relevance of information to my job, level of detail in material, organization, clearly communicated and presented, as well as the overall value of this course. I have taken a lot of training and this is up at the top!

I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to both you (Christina) and Dave Kerr for your professionalism throughout my experiences attending courses offered at TS Technical College. The theory sessions are well implemented into the daily schedules with great explanation that enhances your knowledge and builds your confidence for the final exam. The extra effort given after class is greatly appreciated when you just can’t grasp something the first time. The format and environment during the final exam allows the students to concentrate on the task in hand with no interruptions. The expectations and knowledge required in the HVAC industry in today's society is very crucial, by attending courses offered through you has always helped me with a sound knowledge base to perform my duties as a service technician successfully.
Thanks again, looking forward to future opportunities.

As someone new to the fuel handling industry, I found TS Technical College's Site Operator course very informative and rewarding. We had a varied classroom of new and experienced individuals but David made sure to keep everyone engaged while making sure we were prepared for the TSSA Site Operator's exam. I really liked the hands on part of the course; those along with the great story examples that David gave, made for a class where the material easily captured our attention and the learning came automatically. I would highly recommend TS Technical College to anyone looking to take the Site Operator's course.

Renu Chattha

Thanks very much. I had a great experience and will recommend TS Technical College to anyone. The material was presented and reviewed in a manner that allowed the student to understand and retain it.

I would just like to say how enjoyable and informative the OBT3 training session was that I attended. Thank you,

Roger J. Petro

I wanted to take this time to thank both Christine and David Kerr for the ease and confidence in recently challenging my OBT 3 license. I was new to the oil heat industry back in 2007 when my husband and I took over the business he used to work for. Since then I have been to many training courses, including the OBAT course at TS Technical in Oct. 09, where David suggest I take the OBT 3 challenge. Being the only woman in these courses can sometimes be overwhelming, but David never made me feel out of place and gave me the confidence that I needed to successfully complete this course. He was very thorough and explained things in an easy, to relate manner. I would recommend any women looking to adventure into the heating/cooling or electrical industries seriously consider TS Technical College for your education. I guarantee you will walk away feeling empowered.

Kerri Aultman
Aultman’s Heating Ltd.

Thanks again for a great PMH course that myself and staff took both earlier this week, and last month. I found the course very informative and detailed, in a professional setting.

Al Procter
Pro-Mar Electrical Services Ltd.

I recently participated in the OBT3 challenge course, and I must say it was money well spent. I found David Kerr very professional and extremely knowledgeable. He is by far one of the best teachers I have ever had, and this includes programs I have taken at a community college. I would not hesitate to take more courses with David Kerr.

Chris Lewkin

I just wanted to let you know that I found the PMH training both interesting and informative and that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the course to anyone.

Please let David know that I really enjoyed the PMH course. It was very well done, informative and actually enjoyable!

Mark Reindl
PMH

I had recently enrolled at TS Technical Training for an OBT-3 Challenge Course under the instruction of Dave Kerr; the course was excellent. The style of teaching was noticeably different than traditional methods with specific attention being paid to actual instances. Dave clearly has many years of experience in the industry and his methods reflect this positively. He offered examples from his experience to compliment the theory portion of the course which were both engaging and interesting. It was apparent that Dave was properly prepared to teach each day and the materials he intended on teaching were fresh in his mind.
We have an apprentice who took the G3 course with TS and was quite pleased as well. We would recommend this organization to anyone looking to enter into a technical career or to get working knowledge of the theory behind the equipment covered under the gas and oil codes.

Tyler Van Dyke

I recently was involved with the college and one of their courses. The course outline and roll out was very professional the instructor and owner David Kerr was one of the best in his field. He left nothing out of the course agenda also adding personnel experience which was extremely valuable as addition information. The facility is first rate with equipment from years past to up to date equipment which gives you the student a variety of different equipment to work on and practice with.

I want to thank-you for the past week. I really enjoyed the course and you kept it real with the practical pictures and trip.

Thank you very much.

I’d like to say that I’ve utilized TS College three times so far for my PMH, PM3 and PM2 and each time the experience was great. The administration part is always quick and efficient and David is a knowledgeable and interesting instructor and I always feel like I’m getting my money’s worth. I’ve sent several of my employees to your school as well and they’ve echoed the same sentiments.

Edmond Sheregy

It was an absolute joy to share in the class and obtain the knowledge which I have acquired it was fun truly.

Again, it wouldn’t have been possible without the diligent assistance of all at TS College. This is a reflection of your professionalism.
Take care,

Dave Hartwell

I really appreciated how David taught the course. I enjoyed myself and learned a lot. I would recommend the course to anybody.

Jeff Dunford

Thanks for the Monday training session. We found it very useful and very relevant to our work. One day is a short time to pack so much information into. But I think it worked and we came away with lots of new knowledge, and confirmation of some old knowledge, we so weren't sure about. Your clarification of various roles and responsibilities under The Act and its associated implications is extremely helpful. The venue was also very nice: comfortable (good chairs!), clean, well lit, with lots of desk space, organized, and of course supplied with the necessary coffee. The study binder was, and will continue to be, a very helpful reference resource. The message was clearly presented; you encouraged class participation and triggered good questions. We benefited with the learning we took away and we now know where to look for further info. Most importantly, you got us thinking. Thanks again,

A Hybrid Future in Learning

Say the word "Hybrid" and what may come to mind first is an environmentally friendly, fuel-efficient car. However, as the demand for a certified, achieved recognized level of skills and knowledge increases, TS Technical College is discovering the many benefits of hybrid learning, including flexible scheduling and increased understanding by organizations and individuals about the activity in which they are involved.

Several trends are coming together that create a need for on-the-job recognition and understanding, in regards to supporting current and growing green initiatives that tackle climate change. Nationally, the federal government has made these issues a priority, especially in the Oil & Gas Industry, considered strategic for economic and security growth. Concern for the environment is one of the core values of TS Technical College, and was from the moment we opened our doors 12 years ago. Our Hybrid courses are designed to help improve the global competitiveness of business and industry through ensuring that their many workers are prepared.

Talk is one thing, real action is another!
