HSTTP Continues to Expand its Reach continued the residential inspectors exam, attend their college. We are currently working with Gabe to get his request for financial aid submitted and apply for scholarships. Harry has spoken to the college and had Gabe’s administration fees waived and is working to place Gabe in a good job while at PCT. We are very pleased with the outcome of our meeting, and the value PCT has set on our program and the students that achieve COAs. As you can see, much has happened in the past months, all due to the hard work of our code officials across the country. In the coming months we will provide an update from Kansas, Arizona, New York and Utah. If you want to insure your legacy continues, go to your local tech school, introduce yourself, help educate the future workforce and encourage these students to follow a career in code enforcement.
