Customer Feedback
It [Troubleshooting - Motor Controls] is one of the best pieces of educational software I have used...All in all a truly exceptional product.
It had some challenging faults that actually helped me improve my troubleshooting skills which I have since been able to apply on my current job as an industrial electrician.
The software is working out great and I've seen the difference in the few people I've already run through the programs. The more practice I can get these new troubleshooters, the better.
