Comments from Abstracting & Examination Fundamentals virtual attendees:

It's great to have the vast experience and knowledge of the speakers in one program. Their expertise, concise answers and personal experiences bring the educational value of this program to a new level. What a great teaching tool for new employees along with needed reminders about basic elements of examination for more experienced folks. The entire program was well put together, broad in topics and on-point in it's thorough information.

Been in the business 28 years and try to keep learning as much as I can to stay current and not get stale. This was the most interesting CE course I've taken in years. Learned lots of things I didn't know.

Informative and organized very well. I'm relatively new to both escrow and exam and this was a great introduction to the field. There's was a great cross section of basic to more advanced information kept the sessions interesting.

The scope of everything covered made me feel like I got a jump start and a lot of understanding....plus tied a lot of different subject relating to abstracting and examination together.
