"I attended a one-day SpecText Workshop. By far, this was the most valuable, comprehensive, enjoyable training I've been to in many years. The training session offered a perfect balance between a formal presentation of content/material and information 'ask questions as you go.' The hands-on training following the basic information presentation was invaluable! I highly recommend SpecText Workshop to anyone that has access to or uses SpecText. The amount of knowledge and experience gained through the academy justifies any amount of time or money spent attending the class."
