Our facilities and our faculty are our school. We offer new classrooms, corporate styled, highly qualified educators and a great educational program. That sums it up. I'd like to see a school attempt to outperform us. It would give us the drive to do even more. We are usually working at 110%. We have made our Home Inspection the largest independent program on Long island and we are continuing to work towards the success of our traditional and on-line real estate programs. To that end, we are always working towards the betterment of our career licensing programs to benefit our students".
