Leak Detection Engineer
The instructor and the math problems that directly related to real life (valve sizing, etc.). The instructor did a fantastic job keeping me engaged in a topic that could have been very boring, especially since my motivation was minimal. Loved Bill's humor and was very impressed that I stayed engaged.
