What our customers have to say:

·         I love how detailed and thorough this course is. I've taken HQS Certification classes from other agencies and I feel like I've been missing out all these years. I'm so glad to have the pleasure of attending this NAHRO training and would recommend it to anyone. The instructor was very knowledgeable and I left feeling like all my questions had been answered.

·         I learned so much information. Helped me better understand the responsibilities of the inspector.

·         I loved being able to interact personally with the instructor and class; that the materials were already printed out, organized and ready to just move seamlessly through it.

·         I liked that the Faculty was very interactive with the participants, that can sometimes be difficult via zoom.

·         The instructor was very inclusive and encouraged group participation. This made the training much more engaging and interactive.
