As a BONUS in this class, we have the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners setting up their traveling display trailer for this class concerning backflow issues.

Track #3 on Friday

We are constantly asked the question, Who is the Best Software Company for writing Home Inspection Reports? While this is always a personal choice, this year we wanted to help you see a comparison of four popular software companies. How do their programs work and is it is for you. These software companies will demonstrate the TREC Promulgated Report Form using their specific software programs showing attendees various writing technigues, how to place photos and illustrations into reports and how to use auto comments in each section of your reports. If you are looking for software comparison or just needing to change your report writing software, this is the class for you. Another WOW Class!
