testimonials
This was my first time taking an online course, but the instructors were always there to help me. I could call or email any time and they always answered my questions completely. I believe this was the best way for me to learn home inspection because I do better on my own outside of the classroom. The course was simple to complete and I had no problems passing it. I have my own home inspector business now and I'm really glad I took this course because it got me ready for my future. I would recommend it to others.
