Power System Protection and Coordination Attendeee Feedback

A sampling of what our previous attendees have said as part of their course evaluation. We have yet to have anyone rate the class as very good  (9+ out of 10) so these comments were somewhat unique or more verbalized. Some of them were from the feedback forms where they were asked what information was most helpful to them.
