Excellent Information, Well Presented

Excellent information, well presented. Instructor (Robbie Walker) covered a great deal in a short time without making it redundant or uninteresting. Information was up to date and covered all aspects of the SCP responsibilities both commercial and Military. BZ to the instructor.
