Each class concentrates on a specific skill area and is 5 days in length. You learn restoration by doing restoration with hands-on experience. Due to the hands-on nature of the classes, participants will spend full days in the class and may only take one class per week.

每个班级的注册人数有限,因此所有参与者都可以从最火的十个赌博软件的专家教练的个人关注中受益,并有充足的时间在设备上. 通过这种一对一的方法, no matter what level of skill you have, you will increase your restoration expertise.

类 include valuable information on locating 工具, materials, and parts. In many cases, you can bring parts from your current restoration project to work on.
