The idea was to put out the bid to vendors and PWNA members for review and submittal of their coursework and plan of implementation. We are keeping a VERY open mind in regards to what we receive. This is a process, and the process should be allowed to take it's course. We should really wait and see what is submitted and review with a very open mind. It is important that we keep the members needs first. If company A has a better plan than company B in the same area we should go with A, if however, company B has a better plan in another area than company A we should look at the bid for that course. Again, the main purpose of this is to be able to offer courses in ALL areas of the industry for education. The PWNA should have this as a main function and be a "partner" in the successes of pressure washing businesses. The reason for reaching out to vendors is their dollars and efforts into research and development. There is a lot of information and coursework out there. We want to be able to offer the best there is in any particular niche of the industry. Another key is that we would like the course material to be generic so that is not favored to any one individual or company, fair for one and fair for all. If someone is still willing to submit some material for consideration there is still time as we will be reviewing these at our face-to-face board meeting in Memphis on Feb. 20-21. If anyone is interested in attending this meeting please just contact me. Thank you.
