Hello Steven, I hope you and your loved ones are well and safe. I just wanted to thank you🙂 the last time when I’ve watched your online session, which included a chapter on graphics and curves, I decided to use them into my work on the daily basis and it works very well for me! I can't believe now that I didn't use these graphs every day, they give so much information and data. Working without a graphs is like driving a car without using a speedometer and tachometer and guessing how fast you are going. Sep 2020

The training was made enjoyable with discussion and interaction between trainer and the trainees. Very well presented course. (Siemens S7, Sept 2019)
