Classroom Training

Fees: from $1995 | Days: 6-12 | Type: Class | Call to Enroll

PHII offers a nationally recognized classroom course at our training center in Madison, South Dakota, that fulfills the education requirements for states that do not accept distance courses such as New York, Arkansas, Maryland, Indiana, and West Virginia. The advantage of our classroom training is that students are provided with PHII's interactive online distance course in advance, which helps students prepare for the live training.

Prepping ahead of time allows students to ask hard questions in class and not be bogged down learning the introductory material that is easier to learn at home. Instead, students can spend more classroom time learning detailed information, report writing, and field work.

Depending on state requirements, students listen to lectures, watch powerpoint presentations, work with mock equipment, and inspect houses. Students also have access to classroom computers during the training in order to complete assignments, testing, and inspection reports. No other school offers PHII's style of hybrid classroom that allows each student to progress at his or her own pace so that no one is left behind.

VA approvedStudents enrolling in live classes will receive all the materials included with the distance course in advance to help them prepare for the classroom course. Classroom training is approved for Veterans Administration (V.A.) Education Benefits. Call for more information or to reserve your space in a class!
