Have you found any training videos on tile roof inspections?

Jumping into this course now

Its not organized the best. Fast forward to where all of the articles are. Scroll way down to the roofs part and print off all seven articles. Staple each one and you now have seven work books, plus the roof book you hopefully purchased plus the dictation of the speaker. You will need all of this plus your google search engine to ask google some questions that are just not found anywhere in all of the material I just told you about. I passed the third time by printing the seven articles and reading them once. No one tells you but moving forward I am doing this for all modules. Good info to have but no one told me. I thought it was for general reading and essay choices.

I think you sent it to the wrong person sorry
