Daniel Brown  has been a pleasure to work with from day one. The level of service Dan provides was evident even before I to signed up for his class, when he took the time to review my work and help me determine which training would be right for me. In the training, Daniel’s mastery of the subject matter was clear and he did a great job of keeping the training on track, while answering all participants questions throughout the day. He has even made himself available to answer follow up questions in days and weeks since taking the class. I highly recommend Daniel. I will definitely be reaching out to him again for my future training needs.

The class was fun, enjoyable, relaxed and interesting. Dan Brown is an excellent instructor and is a true master of the material.
I only wish we could stretch the course out over a week so we could practice more and work on a sample project.

The Plugins and render tools were extremely helpful as well as the tips Dan gave on how to build more efficiently. Dan is a great teacher and is very patient. He does not continue to the next step unless the whole group is caught up.Dan was available for any questions via email or phone and responds very quickly. Overall I really enjoyed my training and would recommend to my fellow architect friends!

Dan is a fantastic instructor. The class is a great beginner course & intro to the basics of SketchUp. The pace of the course was great, and gave me the confidence to navigate and use SketchUp for basic design purposes.
