CTO, NewAE Technology Inc.

“Andy’s EMC Design for Compliance training is a great mix of theory with practical experiments, and helped me intuitively understand where EMC problems occur and how to avoid them."

Richelle Eck
Engineering Manager, Inuktun Services Inc.

"The courses have really made a difference in the thinking and approach of our electrical engineering team. They now consistently think about design for emissions and immunity as an integral part of our design process. The training has been extremely valuable.“

Dave McCall
Lead Engineer, Steris Medical

“Thank you, Andy! Great course! I learned a lot, understand EMC much better and now am eager to apply that knowledge to a few applications here that have been troubling me.”
