Every thing was excellent only that too many people in the class it should be less than 4 people and the time is a little bet long it should be around two hours

Angel is very knowledgeable and has a great passion for welding which made the class enjoyable and fascinating. He was very hands on and was quick to anwer any questions or correct any troubles I had with the material. I would definitely like to continue the next step.

Angel Perez was very patient and truly knowledgeable. He was able to provide individual attention throughout the many phases of welding. We all got into what we were doing and looked to help each other. This class was truly educational and fun. I had a great time and will return for the Tig class.

Under the circumstances the instructor did a great job. The reason for the middling review was owing more to the facility. The staff working in the shop during the class meant that the available work space was reduced considerable and there was a moments of dodging out of people's way. The shop was also quite dirty. In terms of getting that was not a problem since you expect a bit of that when working with metal. The issue is that for beginners with little or no experience working in a shop it sets the norm for how a shop should be and that is bad if pursue the craft further. The limited amount of equipment relative to the class size was also an issue and meant that people spent a fair bit of time waiting around to do what they need to do. Finally, working with metal in a shop on a warm day makes you thirsty and there was no fountain, vending machine or other source of water apart from cupping you hands under the bathroom sink. It wasn't a major issue as we eventually got some bottles of water from the deli a few block away but it would have been a good thing to know in advance. On the whole the course was helpful and informative but could be greatly benefited by better plan, running a cleaner shop and thinking about class size relative to resources.
