  Land Surveyors, Home Inspectors and Engineers Weigh In on Important Criteria

Warren, PA, December 21, 2012 - McKissock, a leader in continuing education, has
compiled the top criteria that land surveying, home inspection and engineer
professionals consider when selecting continuing education courses required by
states and industry associations.

“We invite everyone to use these criteria to scrutinize their education choices,” says
Annie Creek, Market Research and Compliance Specialist at McKissock. “The licensed
professionals we work with are required to take courses, but have the freedom to
select their education partners. Hopefully we can help shed some light on how
continuing education can be enjoyable.”

According to ongoing research among licensed professionals, the following criteria
top the list.

   1. Price – The cost of courses is clearly a top priority. Take the time to compare
      courses, look into discounted course packages and ask about price matching.

   2. Relevance – Review home inspection, engineering and land surveying
       courses with a lens of relevancy. In addition to what’s required, select
       courses that will make your job easier or better. Education providers should
       strive to offer classes, webinars and resources that apply directly to your daily
       tasks.

   3. Acceptance – Most of the time, professionals seeking continuing education
      need to meet strict requirements for their state or industry associations. It’s
      critical to ensure that the courses you take meet their standards and
      requirements.

   4. Access – Busy professionals require extra coursework to be quick and easy to
      find and complete. Consider courses that can be taken on-the-fly at any time.

   5. Expertise – Don’t be afraid to ask about instructors’ and course authors’
       experience in their respective industries. The best courses are almost always
       written and taught by subject matter experts who have real-world experience.
