    "My company has been doing single home audits for years. I knew that to continue to expand the business, I needed this certification. Obviously there's no substitute for experience but I felt comfortable going into my first multifamily building after this course. Susan was very well versed in the subject matter and had a real teacher's mentality. Would recommend to anyone looking to get BPI Multifamily certified."
