    GREAT COURSE NOT TO LONG AND GOOD MATERIAL

  • July 24th, 2018 -

    No complaints. Since it's just another government mandated program and does nothing to address the real problem of rampant unlicensed contracting it might as well be as trivial as possible.

    Better graphics sizes and more graphics would have improved the course.

    I wish there were CEU's available that make the legal- and building code portions less boring. For exzmple, instead of printing all this mind-numbing legalese, create a plain language 'digest' that explains in practical terms how code compliance actually works out in common practices. I would pay extra money for that.

    Too much verbiage, too few pictures and diagrams

  • July 5th, 2018 -

    I guess I did not pay attention but this course is not a video course, only text.

  • August 21st, 2018 -

    The course is fine but should be tailored to the region that is applicable to the student. The course is geared to construction in the northern state. we should have one for South Florida and its building disciplines.
