July 8th, 2018
i loved the dylithiam crystal hammer. comment a star trek fan wrote that and then there was one term that came up called NIMBY.. this was a George Carlin joke in the 90s i will keep taking all my education classes with you guys

June 20th, 2018
I found this course fairly simple to complete and full of great information.

Very informative, thank you

March 11th, 2018
Informative and not over done

February 17th, 2018
I enjoyed the breakdown into smaller sections for more info on each topic. I especially like reading about water catchment and tiny house construction. Illustrations made the lessons even better.

February 13th, 2018
I was so glad I choose a little more expensive option to get courses I was more interested in. It was very informative and nice to learn in the comfort of my own time.

October 8th, 2017
The course was easy to use and fast. It was also very informative Thanks

October 2nd, 2017
I really liked the course on micro homes, though I think that maybe you should make a few of your 13 hour continuing education training sets more geared towards certain types of contractors. For example, we are sewer contractors, I would like to see a 13 hour set of courses that have to do with things we specifically need to know or review that we would actually use. Our specialty type of services are not helped by courses on new building manufacturer, but we could use a course on environmental impacts of sewer vs septic or a course on septic tank decompressioning. Courses that would give us information we may already know because of experience, but have no formal training or information, legal or environmental, that we can quote or show where comes from to a perspective or repeat client. Sometimes people just want to know why, and the answer "just because we always have" just isn't good enough. I'm also positive other construction specialties would like to have courses that are much more geared to things they need to know or information they can use in reality too. You may find if you look to make course groups in that frame of mind, you will find your business expanding, and word of mouth between contractors that share specialties regarding your continued education offerings will increase also, since all of us have to do continued education every two years to renew our licenses.

October 1st, 2017
I liked the topics provided. They are pertinent to what I do.

October 1st, 2017

Very informative, would use this course again, and happy to recommend it to fellow contractors.

July 31st, 2017
this was a fully loaded course, provides you with the knowledge and tools needed to start your quest on becoming a better contractor.i would recommend this course to anyone with that same goal in mind. thank you

July 26th, 2017
The course is for the most part ok and helpful but is sometimes far from actually accomplishing what is sometimes says it does. For instance after the BEST lesson it suggests you are now ready to do all the things it has taught you and most of those things take hands on experience to actually master. There are some repetition in at least one of the lessons.

July 14th, 2017
It was really helpful and the content was awesome.

June 21st, 2017
Good course

June 19th, 2017

May 7th, 2017
great course!

May 5th, 2017
I'm not into the tiny house thing but it was fine

April 27th, 2017

February 28th, 2017
I liked how this course trends with the here and now

February 26th, 2017

February 17th, 2017
Got the job done

February 12th, 2017
The course is constructed in a very comprehensible way, containing extremely valuable information.

July 19th, 2018
The Micro Home course could use more detail about current codes in Portland and examples of tax disadvantages .

January 29th, 2018
Informative and easy to read and understand

January 15th, 2018
I enjoyed the combination of the courses. The rainharvesting course was very detailed and interesting. The drawings/pictures were very beneficial to understanding the material.

December 4th, 2017
Covered some interesting topics that one might consider getting into.

November 26th, 2017
it was ok

October 3rd, 2017
Loved being able to complete online on my own schedule & it saves the progress so i don't have to restart the chapter all over again!

September 21st, 2017
Mostly good content, very comprehensive.

September 20th, 2017
A few questions were asked before the corresponding material was presented.

September 3rd, 2017
Not very "trade distinctive"

July 6th, 2017
Would love to have more visual aids. Movie clips animations anything other than lots of reading. Many people don't learn well that way

June 13th, 2017
Courses need to be reviewed for apropriate grammar/punctuation.

June 6th, 2017
I like when the course is in videos

April 26th, 2017
Great if you love to read!

April 21st, 2017
I am a Tree Service required to have a CCB. There was quite literally nothing, save contracts, relevant to my profession and i view this a as ploy for the government to gouge more money out of me.

March 16th, 2017
slow and boring...

February 20th, 2017
Some of the material had nothing to do with my area as I am a paint Drywall contractor..maybe more for general contractor

September 15th, 2017
Sections of the course lacked adequate photos/diagrams to illustrate concepts.

August 6th, 2017
I think spending 2 hours learning about tiny houses is a giant waste of time. If someone wants to build them let them do the research don't waste my time on something I want no part of. I also believe it will be a short lived trend because people will always choose the stability of owning there own land over constant travel and uncertainty.

March 31st, 2017
Learning how to build/construct anything by reading paragraphs and paragraphs of text is not helpful. More visuals are needed.

March 21st, 2017
This course has nothing to do with my line of contracting.

March 16th, 2017
Very time consuming
