    Both my husband and I were blown away by both the Electrical and the Renovation Maximizer courses. In one week we learned how to (take a deep breath)…properly do an electrical installation, use power tools safely, put up stud framing, insulate and vapor barrier, put up drywall, hang a door, finish casing and baseboards, take out and install a bathtub, toilet and vanity, do basic plumbing installations, properly waterproof a tub surround, lay down flooring, and tile, as well as learning what tools and products are best for the job. Phew! I cannot say enough about the knowledge, skill, and generosity of the teachers. This is going to save us a lot of money! I would absolutely recommend the DIY Training Center.
