    Small departments are a good place to cut your teeth in and learn.
    May I suggest if you have not read this book that you get a copy of it a read it and then re-read it every couple of years as you grow and gain experience lest we forget why and what an inspection is suppose to achieve.

    For training, you can't beat the Colorado Chapter's Educational Institute, a days drive for you, but the bang for the buck is amazing, take your pick from 65 full day classes, in 13 paths, mix and match. Next year it will be in Loveland at the Embassy Suites. PM me if you want more info as it gets closer, always the first week in March.

    that does sound like a lot of bang for the buck. I will have to seriously think about checking that out next year.

    Rachel has been kicked to spammer haven. She listed herself from Delaware, had a Chinese time zone and the IP was coming from the Philippines.
    Bye Rachel.
