    information: 5/5 examples: 1/5 Pictures would blow up in small window and could not see anything(should have pictures open in separate window so you can actually see them)

    Covered a lot of material most of which was very understandable and useful if I were a home builder or contractor or someone overseeing the construction of a home. would be very useful to a new home owner overseeing a new build for oneself.

    It was my first time for an online class. It was nice to go at my own pace or when I had time to do it. I learned more than a live class, but it had more testing. Overall a good learning process.

    RECOMMEND TIMING CLOSER TO 7 HOURS. I CONSIDER MYSELF A GOOD READER, ABLE TO ABSORB FAIRLY WELL. IT TOOK 14+ HOURS TO COMPLETE THIS 7 HOUR COURSE. GOOD INFORMATION THOUGH, THANK YOU!

    Lots of info but maybe too in-depth in the technical aspects. Takes longer than 7 hours.

  • February 16th, 2018 -

    Poor quality, not well thought out or executed. Silly pictures of poor quality jobs. Plates on concrete floors not pressure treated? Things covered that are code but no contractor would do. Framing examples shone done in ways specifically not recommended.

    Again- checkout you tube for ideas on instructional videos. Also I was repeatedly put back to sections I had successfully completed when I logged back in to course after a break-feared at one point I woudnt be able to finish. ALSO ...if at all possible, Please don't waste our time by teaching us things we'll never use like highly technical electrical info on solar panel systems. Hate to complain but you Asked
