A while ago I visited my local county business council building and they had a room for video conferencing for education. The room held about 30-40 people. The instructor was in a distant location broadcast his “interactive” course across the country to other cities that also have these facilities.
I saw this as a excellent way to inexpensively hold continuing education seminars to many people at one time with minimal overhead and travel expenses for the instructor and the participants.
These video conference centers I’m sure are located only short distances from NACHI chapters around the country…all it needs is a little organizing with the chapter heads. National picks a date and time and the chapter presidents secure the location and charge the appropriate fees to pay for the room and also help pay for the instructor.
I brought this idea up to a member here that had started a home inspector training school or online school and he liked the idea, but I guess the business failed before it got off the ground.
I also brought it up to our state HI organization, but they didn’t want to hear it because they said it would deter people from attending their annual continuing education conference and thus a loss of revenue.
Anyway, it’s just a thought.
