"As a workforce development training centre, the Manitoba Environmental Industries Association conducts reviews from all its industry participants.  I am always pleased to hear from both new and senior trainees alike that the material covered in the HAZWOPER/NFPA 472 is consistently referred to as being one of the most relevant to our industry member's daily work, but also the feed back we get from everyone is that Bart Taylor is a top notch quality instructor who knows his stuff.  I highly recommend this course across multiple industries" - Jack Winram, Executive Director, MEIA

"In mid to late 2017 I had enrolled all of my supervision and management including myself in the HAZWOPER NFPA 472 that Mr. Taylor trained.  The course was very informative and effective for my team.  I would recommend Barton Taylor to anyone searching for the HAZWOPER course.  I plan to use Barton moving forward for all future employees" - Chris Samms, Manager Landfill Operations, Acden

"I have trained with and highly recommend Barton Taylor's of HAZMATTERS expertise and knowledge in his classes.  As a Hazmat technician and Firefighter his classes are diverse using Bart's extensive chemical background goes above the standard for Hazardous Materials.  Courses are very thorough with lots of discussion and room for learning.   A must for upgrading ones background in this ever growing field.  Will contact and use HAZMATTERS in the future.

Thanks Bart "- Ron "Twist"  Oschanney, Hazmat Technician Co-op Refinery

"This is an  exceptional course, presented by one of the best facilitators I have ever encountered" - Daniel Hemsworth,  Acden Environmental 

"Class was awesome, as expected. Seven years’ ago, you provided me the tools and knowledge to protect not only myself but also my employees in a manner that I feel was focused on us not the company.  That to me carries a lifetime of debt. Anytime I can help or get you some business I’ll do my very best.  Thanks again."- John Mason, Senior Superintendent, AMEC Foster Wheeler/Wood Group

"Bart  was fantastic.  He is like the "Grism" of CSI.  I would love to follow him for a month and have him mentor me.  A very valuable and informative individual "- Lesle Cafferty - CNL Whiteshell
