    "I took my test this morning and I PASSED. Out of all the exam prep courses I've taken over my 30 year career, CleanEdison's was by far the best. The material was spot-on and the precourse exam questions were familiar when taking the actual test. I will be taking my next course in the track with CleanEdison. "

    "I passed the test today! I def feel like I owe CleanEdison a huge thank you for the course and the additional materials they sent out last night. Also the instructor stayed with us after the class to work on areas where we were weak. I took other courses where we were herded out at 5:00 on the dot. I def feel like I got more than my money's worth in their class. "

Elliot was very helpful and did all he said he would. There were several schedule changes on your part, that was my only frustration. Bill who taught the class did a fine job. Tom who was the proctor for the field exam was first class. I plan on taking future classes for BPI and LEED certification with Clean Edison."
