It was actually a great class with a fantastic teacher! I’m glad I chose Burnaby!(August 2017)
The information was given in a way that was easy to understand. The instructor was easy going and funny. I enjoyed the class very much.
The instructor took time to explain and make sure everyone always understood the lessons. He was awesome.
