Student Testimonials:

This is a very extensive overview of BAS startup and checkout topics and I would highly recommend it.

by Brock Schupp

 II feel the course is a great step by step program in understanding how to perform startup and checkout for a BAS. The organization of the course is organized in a way that mirrors work in the field.
