I recently had the pleasure of attending the 5-day Sovell Training Class with several of my co-workers. There is no doubt in my mind that Mike Sovell is one of the most knowledgeable people in the country on window testing, field procedures and the associated ASTM and AAMA specifications. The combination of classroom and hands-on testing was precisely what our group needed. I would recommend this class to anyone.

Just wanted to say thank you for all your efforts last week, the class was excellent. Your presentation and knowledge of standards in the class room setting was informative and easy to comprehend, your expertise in the lab setting exceeded all expectations and was flawless.

I recently had the pleasure of attending a 5-day training with Mike. I’ve never met anyone who has such a deep level of understanding and knowledge in their industry as Mike. We barely made it through the 5 days covering only the basics! We could have easily gone through the weekend and longer. I recommend anyone interested in this field to contact Mike and attend his training.

This training provided us the additional training we needed to address the ever increasing testing needs of our clients and their properties. Mike Sovell proved and continues to prove to be an excellent asset for not only the initial training but is likewsie a great resource for questions we have had over the years. I would highly recommend Mike and his expertise.

Thought I would let you know that we have taken your education and put it to the test. Our testing and training facility was recently accedited by IAS as TL-415. Talk about having to burn the midnight oil, a lot of work but it couldn’t have been put together without a soild training and foundation we recieved from you. Thanks again.

I can’t say enough about the training you gave me regarding testing. Your vast knowledge and command of the standards and specifications was priceless in giving me a comprehensive overview of how they all work together. The field demonstrations and application was equally beneficial and your technique was logical and easy to follow. Thank you for the great training.

Even with a comprehensive background of over 20 years in the window & door business, the training I received from Mike Sovell was absolutely essential in better understanding the proper procedures required to test to national standards. Mike is an excellent instructor and an authority on both residential & commercial testing. He is great at adapting to the client’s specific needs.

Hi Mike, we were notified today, by email, that we are now AAMA accredited. Thanks for all your help making it happen.

The classes totally exceeded my expectations. I went in with a goal of getting my staff trained on the basics but I feel they left with much, much more. Mike Sovell’s hands-on-training in the RM Group’s lab saved me months worth of staff training! Not only did my staff add to their knowledge but I was able to fine tune my skills even after all my years of forensic inspections and testing. I recommend Mike’s classes to all levels of forensic testers, from the beginner to the expert.

I have always subscribed to the theory, ‘the day you think you know everything, you know nothing’. In the 35 years that I have been in the window business, I have never attended a more informative seminar than the one given by Mike Sovell. The combination of classroom work with a hands on approach to reinforce the material was outstanding. Mike’s knowledge of the ASTM and AAMA standards is unprecedented. With the current litigious environment and the changing building codes, I would strongly recommend this course to all window executives.
J. JohansonJ2 Building Consultants, Inc
This training certainly exceeded our expectations. Mike Sovell has an impressive depth of knowledge and he keeps the training moving by mixing up the classroom part with hands-on demonstration. We learned everything we wanted to learn and much, much more.
