What I enjoyed most about buildABILITY’s training events is that they are interactive and personal.  The instructors are ready to answer questions right away, making learning much easier. I felt I had truly learnt about all the aspects of being a responsible builder after completing all seven Tarion courses with buildABILITY.  The steps that we were shown in the classes about how to provide the correct information to Tarion and the discussion we had in the class with a Tarion representative prepared me fully for the interviews.

Michael Lio is a passionate instructor and really wants his students to understand the subject matter. His real-life examples are relevant and provide an additional learning platform.

buildABILITY has opened my eyes to areas of my customer interaction that I have been lacking but probably didn't realize until now. This is a useful tool and will help me take my customer service skills to the next level. I highly recommend this course to anyone in the customer service/home building industry.

Mr. Lio expertly presents well researched material. The presentations encouraged participants to learn new approaches to exceptional customer service and "humanizes" the process by teaching new listening skills. Supplemental handout material were also great take-aways and will be valuable future reference tools.Overall a very rewarding and eye-opening workshop.

I would recommend buildABILITY's 'Delivering Exceptional Customer Service and Tarion Warranty Rules' workshop to anyone in the residential construction sector. The content is, not only, relevant and valuable but Michael's exuberance for it is wonderfully contagious!

The knowledge I gained in this course has been invaluable. You provide students with a "flashlight in a dark room" so to speak. Often times the knowledge has enabled me to even find the light switch!
