Taking a Look Back While Looking Forward

JACK MCGRAW

While we tend to concentrate on what’s next,

The ASHI School (TAS) would like to look back on the past five years of progress and change.

Beginning in: 2010 – The ASHI School, in a joint venture with Casey O’Malley & Associates, issued certificates for students who attended classes in FL, Northern CA, Southern CA, IL, CT, CO and MO.

2011 – Jack McGraw was appointed director of The ASHI School. The school ended its joint venture with Casey O’Malley & Associates. TAS issued certificates for students who attended classes in CA, CO, OH, MO, CT, IL, FL and CA, which moved from locations in Southern and Northern CA to one location in Cypress, CA.

2012 – The ASHI School issued certificates for students who attended classes in CA, CO, CT, GA, IL, VA and OH, which moved from Columbus to Cincinnati State Technical Community College (CSTCC). CSTCC, in partnership with TAS, issues five college credits to students attending home inspection classes at the college. TAS also was approved for Chapter 31, Vocational Rehab and Employment for veterans in all of the school locations. The school also held additional classes in commercial and mold instruction.

2013 – The ASHI School issued certificates for students who attended classes in CA, CO, GA, IL, MO, FL, OH and VA. The school closed the site in Stamford, CT. The school also held additional classes in Commercial, Mold and Infrared instruction. The school opened a new location in NY.

2014 – The ASHI School issued certificates for students who attended classes in CA, CO, GA, IL, MO, FL, OH, VA, and a new location in WA. TAS was approved for the G.I. Bill for the Des Plaines, IL location. We continue to have high interest and registration from veterans using this benefit. The school was approved for its home inspection pre-license instruction in the states of AK, OK, WV, TN, KY and VT. The school has also been approved by the State Board of Career Colleges and Schools in OH. With this approval, the school has moved forward with submitting the paperwork to begin the process of gaining approval for the G.I. Bill in OH.

TAS continues to increase registration in its nine locations and is actively marketing in NY, our tenth location. Two employees were hired at the school: Steve Reilly, Sales Manager in 2012; and Kendra Eiermann, Administrative Assistant in 2013.

2015 – The ASHI School has registered students in CA, CO, OH, FL, GA, IL, MO, VA and WA. TAS has also held a commercial class and has upcoming classes for mold and infrared. The class curriculum has been updated as of February 2015 and is now being used by all instructors.

TAS has many goals for 2015 and beyond. These include additional state approvals, website improvements, more classes, continued excellence in training of home inspectors, and many more.
