Training Feedback

I found the training session very informative. I have been with this organization for almost 5 years and only lately have I heard of “Buy America.” I was quite surprised to hear that we’ve been doing it for as long as we have. I think it was very beneficial for my staff and me to hear what it is and the details surrounding the importance of compliance and all that goes into the process. Thank you for including us in your training.
