great program, very informative

June 9th, 2017
I actually really enjoyed each class and gave me many ideas to add to my business. Some areas needed a bit more explanation and detail. Some pages made you wait too long to go to next page.

wish it was more videos. other then that it was good

April 23rd, 2018
its better than ones I've done in the past. I would add a half star making it 4-1/2 stars

April 1st, 2018
I wanted to learn something new. Enjoyed Rainwater harvesting and micro home classes

June 24th, 2017
Would like to have seen some videos of the construction process, but loved the pictures of the finished spaces. Thank you!

The Rainwater harvesting course was excellent (good combination of information and diagrams). The microhousing course was quite good in terms of addressing business aspects but could have included more building-specific photos and drawings. The BEST (Building Exterior Shell) course was not so good.... many words without enough diagrams and photos. In such a practical trade, videos or photos of correct flashing procedure and installation techniques is worth a lot more than a bunch of words.

March 31st, 2017
I found just a few photos were missing or not quite relevant to the discussions. Could utilize more video and photos of actual building process and speak more to process rather than big concepts.

November 13th, 2018
BEST course was very very wordy and confusing.

September 2nd, 2017
Good clean fun!!

February 17th, 2017
"BEST" course, had some reasonably decent information, however obvious it may have been, for potentially seriously negligent contractors. I expected a bit more of an in depth examination of pertinent information and better delivery of the content than outdated clip art, numerous typos and videos from another state's website. As far as the courses Rainwater harvesting and Micro housing which were the reasons I chose AYPO, the content was displayed in a much more congruous and informative format

Rainwater Harvesting and Micro Homes were OK. Some additional photos would have been nice in the Rainwater class. BEST was completely worthless without photos/drawings to illustrate all the flashing, etc. being described.

June 21st, 2017
I thought a lot of the stuff covered was a little off topic. Many of the sections could have the timer sped up considerably. I am a fast reader and could have finished the material faster and still retained a lot of it.

BEST course: Poorly written, wordy, and misinformed. Suggest hiring a building professional, accomplished tradesman, and technical writer to create a relevant course. Rain Water Harvesting: basic but informative Micro Houses: Do you intend this to be a business class or a a building class? Or is it just a free form brainstorm session? It would be more interesting as a contractor and builder if you explored relevant innovations and technologies, and stayed clear of suggestions about how I might communicate with my client or that they might want to provide "man hours" on the project they have hired me to execute. The portion on code is relevant and should be expanded on.
