"I was one of your students about four years ago in your school in Virginia. I wanted to thank you for helping me to get started and to maintain a successful business. My clients believe that they receive a highly informative and professional home inspection and that is in part due to the inspection techniques that I learned at Kaplan. Thank yo very much."

"I feel like you guys did an excellent job in preparing me for the business. There were no surprises. As I completed more inspections, I grew in competence and confidence, developing a flow and communication with my clients that has resulted in referral business."

"I have worked for, and owned, a lot of different businesses over the past 40 years and have attended countless hours of classes and seminars. But You, Fred and Peter sharing your stories of what it is really like in the field doing real inspections, your knowledge, and enthusiasm for the business you love, was the best part of the class."
