Besides, Rick is partial owner of Home Inspector University, which is a CE credit mill (real easy courses, you can, literally, sleep through the class ans still pass the test) which charges HIs $109.00 for 3 hours of CE (dinner included) just so they can get the state required credit.
The Chicagoland NACHI Chapter, by way of comparision, charges chapter members $25.00 for 3 state approved CE hours (including dinner) and the courses are challanging, new, real and informative.
We have even provided 6 hrs of state approved CE, to NACHI members, for $25.00. Gerry Beumont recently presented 6 hrs of state approved CE (through the state NACHI Chapter, including breakfast, lunch and REAL quality education) for about $100.00 less than these “people” charge. I have attended their courses and, literally, learned nothing that I had not already learned in pre-licensing classes. Yeah, real “Quaility”. Just a CE credit mill. Pay, and get the credit. Not my idea of professional.
The chapter even charges only $50.00 (less than half the cost) to non-NACHI members for the same, quality and professional courses.
Sounds like someone is scared of losing their rice bowl.
Anyone not clear on this, contact me (see below) and I can provide information and documentation of these facts.
Hope this helps;
