http://www.nachi.org/bbsystem/templates/NACHI/images/icon_minipost.gifPosted: Sep 9, 2005 4:35 PM Post subject: Good posts & Free on-line courses. Now, as we enter in to Fall, many inspectors are finding that their business is slowing down a bit. Why not use some of that extra time to develope your knowledge base?

Below is a list of some posts made to the NACHI board that I feel are really good reading. This is by no means an exhaustive list as there have been many good contributions by some very knowledgeable people.
