  46. Kathy K.

    This is a great course. I learned a ton.

  47. John L.

    Very good class. Mike does a great job. There were good inspectors in the class as well, which helps.

  48. Jim B.

    I like the new board! Very nice. The convenience of lumping several similar courses together is very convenient. Thank you. I would like to see a break in cost for multiple classes taken, especially in the same 12-month period.

  49. Benjamin T.

    Mike did an excellent job with both courses. MP is dry but his teaching method was very effective and engaging. The review of new material in the BI course was extremely helpful with the changing landscape in our industry.

  50. Donald Garcia

    Very impressed with Frank Hulce’s knowledge and classroom instruction.

  51. Judy B.

    CHC classes are the best in town with great instructors, but sometimes I’m forced to take cheaper alternatives. Thanks, Danaya for helping with this one. Greatly appreciated! Although we didn’t have the wonderful homemade pastries for this class, I do look forward to them. Lunch for full-day classes is also a nice benefit and seems to be what most local training providers are doing. The books are very well done, but you might want to think about page numbers for the lead inspector manual and having a technical editor review all books for spelling errors. Let me know if you ever want help with that. Thanks for your efforts to provide a high-quality and enjoyable class! I look forward to my refresher classes!

  52. Josh D.

    After 11 years Mike still does a great job in keeping my attention, I appreciate the research the CHC team puts into keeping the course fresh.

  53. Chad K.

    Course covers all material necessary for State exam prep and does not need adjusting.
