Class Reviews

Recent feedback from an AMRRI training: "We put three of our folks through your MLTI training course a couple of months ago. Among the many things they are doing with their new knowledge, they have been taking oil samples for analysis and reviewing the results. The team immediately found over a million dollars worth of gearboxes were at risk with low viscosity oil. The class paid for itself, in days, with just that one facet of your training – thank you!"
