Success at the SMA Stair School!

Students Comments:

  • “Very Informative … I would definitely attend more classes, there were many tricks… I will take home to the guys.”
  • “Overall great class.  I hope I get the first opportunity to attend the next level. I’m happy with what I’m taking away from the 3 day course”

Teachers and Students Agree …pleased with the curriculum as developed but students will benefit from more hands-on that will be worked into future presentations.
