“This was my first experience with ECTI, but it will not be my last.  I’ve taken many similar courses over the years, and this was the best.   Marc and Scott are both excellent, and their experience in industry makes the course material more accessible and easy to understand.  I highly recommend Marc, Scott and ECTI for coursework, both for new and seasoned practitioners.”

“I still say that the 4-Day ECTI seminar is the best “one-stop-shop” for compliance training!!! It’s great for the rookies out there (brand new to the field), and also for folks such as me, who have been in the field for a while.  I always learn something new when I come.  I also like the opportunity to discuss current issues at my job with John.  His insights are always valuable!!  I love that you guys have included an e-manual now.  That will be a BIG help for me!!!  When an issue arises, I routinely go to the hard copy manual, and start thumbing through it.  Now, with the e-manual, I can do a quick .pdf search.”
