Hi, I'm Mark Fine. I started working with ERD trainers when the certification programs first began.
In 2014 I became one of the first private sector trainers certified  by ERD.

That was very convenient. It was the deciding factor..

 

St. John, NL - It was everything I expected to learn and more,

 

Toronto (NABET) - I felt that Mark presented everything that needed to be said.

well and in a timely manner.
