"I took my test this morning and I PASSED. Out of all the exam prep courses I've taken over my 30 year career, Kaplan Clean Tech's was by far the best. The material was spot-on and the precourse exam questions were familiar when taking the actual test. I will be taking my next course in the track with Kaplan Clean Tech. "
