  • What was the most helpful thing for you in this course?

    "Course was simple and multiple choice quizzes made it a learning experience. Retakes on quiz help to retain information."
    Jesus V.

    "I Loved it. Site was user friendly, well organized and focused on important parts of the job. Sorry I have no suggestions of improvement. All questions focused on the important aspects of my job."
    Tammy C.

    "It was a great refresher course! It was easy to maneuver through. I will be back to take your course again next time my certification needs to be renewed!"
    Angelia B.

    "The material was short and very easy to read. I definitely enjoyed the online course as it was geared to process server. I have taken courses online in the past and it had absolutely nothing to do with process server. I recommend this course to anyone who is required to do a refresher course."
    Felicia J.

    "Very good and Complete course with some questions that make you think about scenarios that might come up in the course of business."
    Santos R.

    "Went by smoothly. I will definitely recommend to all my process server friends."
    Hector E.

    "I cannot think of anything that would have made this course better! This is by far the most well-written course I have ever taken. Excellent! The most helpful thing was the "Cut to the Chase" manner in which you provided the information."
    Caren D.

    "The depth of the information provided on process serving in Texas."
    Gerard S.

    "You have a very nice training course."
    Michael D.

  • What is something we can improve or change?

    "Make it easier to exit and return to the course when no able to complete in one sitting."

    Admin response: You can! All you have to do is exit the program and when you log back in, you will restart in the same place you left off.

    "More on working with individual companies and how to deal with them."

    "Although very seldom used the use of Rule 109 (service by publication) should, in my opinion, be more completely explained because some clients (lawyer offices are not up to date as to their use."

    Admin response: Thanks for the feedback! We are in the process of building more courses and will include this topic!
