"I had no problem with loading the presentation. My connection is average at best, but it presented no trouble...The content was very useful and it did prepare me for the test well. The exam took me less than a half hour to complete and was well presented. The attachments opened easily and were very helpful. Overall it was an excellent course despite the early glitches. I would definetly recommend this course to others and probably will as many of my fellow fleet managers are scrambling to meet to the deadlines. There I blame the OSFM for not having this prepared much sooner given the multiple year lead time they had." Bill Manton; CFM Fleet Services Manager Kinser Crane Service
