Instructor’s Note:

“One thing I’d like to emphasize is that students are encouraged to bring their own DME to class to see the products work on familiar/known files. It’s the easiest way to fairly judge if the new techniques/products will work well in the students’ local context. This was an important factor in (other recent training); it doesn’t just work on these perfectly selected examples from Italy and Los Angeles, it also works on the cases sitting (right now) on your desks. After the first two days of hands-on, (the recent students) saw a four-fold increase in processing speed and efficiency using the new tools and techniques (don’t tell me it works, show me it works with my stuff).”
