Stable Smoke

Stable, Accurate Smoke

We didn’t like the accuracy of the traditional smoke generator, so we spent 8 years developing our own. Our entire fleet now consists of these computer-controlled generators. They produce stable smoke values that eliminate the guessing associated with antiquated smoke generator designs.

Stay Until You Pass

Due to our stable smoke and quicker test runs, most schools are completed in 1/2 day. However, we always stay until you certify.

We requested and successfully passed a Federal Audit of our entire smoke school program.

Respected Certifications

We do not give out hints during a test, nor is our test easy. We train you until you are confident and then we test your abilities. We feel our clients are the best smoke readers in the country.
