Everyone’s learning style is different. Some prefer handwritten steps, like a user manual or lesson book. Some prefer on-screen videos to watch a demonstration, then they repeat what they saw. Others like the immersive experience of a hands-on, in-person, live class. We are proud to offer all three types of these educational opportunities for our customers.          For those of you who like the in-person experience, consider coming to our EQ Academy workshop this Spring in Ohio!
