My training at ABITCO exceeded my expectations. ABITCO has a professional atmosphere and professional instructors who are very knowledgeable in their fields. The in-class hands on sample areas made specific components easy to understand. After being introduced to the industries standards of practice, each category in those standards were thought thoroughly. My Home Inspection business is growing rapidly and I have had many comments on how professional my inspection procedure was and I owe this to the training I received at ABITCO.
