“I’ve taken the Seebald & Associates FSO course 3 times and the refresher 2 times, and I always leave with more knowledge. The reputation of the course and refresher course has proven invaluable in keeping me and my company up to speed on all the changes in the rules and regulations. Time and money VERY WELL SPENT!!”

David Galloway, Charleston Midstream Transfer

“I learned a lot in a short period of time thanks to Rich and his teaching techniques. The instructor saw that I was struggling with the laws and regulations and went out of his way during breaks and lunches to quiz me without drawing attention.”
