I’m a product of both schools , ITA home study and 2 cont. ed courses, and the 160 Hr Sun Tech Class room course
As a PT instructor at Sun Tech I may be biased towards Az`SunTech but both offer a excellent starting back ground
The biggest Plus I found with Sun Tech was and still is
the opportunity to contact Allan or his other instructors on there mobile phone while on the inspection site if any questions arise during a inspection.
I think the most important item to consider is The experience of the Instructor not only in the field but more importantly His or Her ability to communicate in the class room
Allen, Kevin and Tony, The Sun Tech Trainers that I know in my opinion top other instructors
Both schools offer field training, Sun Tech includes up to 30 insp or more with there complete course, and I believe [ based on 4 years ago] ITA offers a limited # with the option to acquire more thru a inspector in your area
At times there are posts on this board offering the ITA home study course for resale, Nothing is better than class room hands on training, but from my experience, Definitely a good inexpensive staring point,and reference material prior to completing a class room course
As far as course study with regional items you may get a edge with a local school thru field inspections but from my experience The course matter is addressed to cover all regions
