This is all part of a pilot program trying to develop an effective way to educate interested condo-owners all over Florida – at a reasonable cost. It is imperative that as many owners as possible have access to these kind of courses. 


Education of the parties involved in managing the associations will definitely help to reduce the many problems citizens living in these associations are facing!
