Very informative.

August 30th, 2018
The exam should have given instruction that you do not need to "check" your answers in order to submit, and if you do not check you answer, it will appear as incomplete even though you may have answered the question.

July 11th, 2018
The question i left wrong is correct the other two flagged are for spelling

July 6th, 2018
Very simple

May 8th, 2018
Good course but the Project Management section was hard to follow. Thanks for not having questions on that part in the exam.

February 17th, 2018
there is a lot of stuff on the test that will never be needed nor used for some of us real small contractors .

February 9th, 2018
allow the video to be rewatched

January 4th, 2018
there were two questions, and a possible third that were not correct. Question 183 cant be true if a previous question (can you excavate before a UDC permit) is not true, but that is exactly what you have at present. Bracing questions referred to data not presented in materials (302.25 K I dont think is even a legitimate table) or is not readily found by using State of WI resources. Very lengthy questions seems overkill compared to being in trades and doind 3 to 4 mfg. sessions throughout the year.

November 16th, 2017
The Project Management portion of the course was confusing and to detailed. A broader approach would be more applicable and useful.

October 26th, 2017
It would be nice to be able to check all five questions with one click rather then checking each individual question and having the course load. Otherwise it was pretty good and very conveniently formatted. I'd love to see better descriptions of wall bracing/panels. A video would be helpful for that section if at some point you are able. I feel that would be a better use of your time then the video on project management. Thanks.

October 22nd, 2017
good course some very hard to under stand info and badly written questions

October 18th, 2017
Great. Very Informative

October 11th, 2017
Courses were pretty good, appreciated the code research required.

September 13th, 2017
time consuming to require submission of each question

August 25th, 2017
Some parts were too technical

March 14th, 2017
It would be better if someone could refer back to the course content provided when asked. Knowing where to find the information is half the battle.

February 25th, 2017
It was convenient to do it when I could.

February 7th, 2017

July 22nd, 2018
The project manager part is totally useless for a contractor. I was a superintendent for years and also a contractor, you guys get way to involved in the project management part, most jobs for small contractors don't involve all project manager stuff.

March 9th, 2018
Prefer reading, skipping the videos would have improved my rating

March 1st, 2018
It's a good course except that I am very disappointed that a very large portion of it does not pertain to my business, and therefore I feel that I'm wasting my time. I would rather be studding on something that could improve my knowledge and performance in my business. For instance,the project management part which is supposed to be a two hr course turned out to be five hours, and is full of information which is not useful to me as a sole proprietor business. I have a system of bidding which is similar and works quite well for me. Also that portion of the course has nothing to do with the quality outcome of my work, and so I resent having to spend so much time on it. Also, much of what the course covers with contracts and working for the the federal government is geared toward big businesses, and has nothing to do with what I do. I would rather spend more time on building codes, and practices.To put it in a nut shell, I think you should have separate courses designed for small businesses, and big businesses.

November 22nd, 2017
Final exam was hard to work through. Having to individually check each answer by clicking the box made the 230 question text longer than needed.

October 23rd, 2017
Test......231 questions is way way to long!

October 5th, 2017
I think the course is excellent overall. However the glitchy videos in the PROJECT MANAGEMENT section were really annoying. I had to restart every video numerous times to finally get to the questions section. Video 4 stopped 3 times and needed to restart, the last time with just 4 seconds remaining. AArrrgh! Once they stopped there was no way to restart them. They just froze. If you can fix that, I'll give you 5 stars. Better yet stick with the simple format of the other areas and save your clients from having to sit through the videos. Thanks!

July 30th, 2017
frustrating as hell

June 30th, 2017
instructions were not very clear, some of the questions didn't match the code

March 20th, 2017
I felt this course was written by a college student with no experience in the field.

February 25th, 2017
nedds some work

February 22nd, 2017
The answer form required multiple hitting the check button to get many of the answers to register as complete. Really annoying
