Default GopherHaul Lawn Care Business School now online.

The GopherHaul Lawn Care Business School is now online.

If you look above along the brown bar header, you will see a new section added to the forum. Our FREE online lawn care business school.

This FREE course the "Class 1 - Lawn Care Business Operator's Certificate" is designed to give the new lawn care business owner a knowledge base to draw from and build a successful lawn care business.

There are a total of 69 lessons to this course with 193 multiple choice questions. Each lesson has on average 3 multiple choice questions for you to answer after reading. The total time to complete this course depends on how much you read per sitting. I would suggest pacing yourself and reading 3 lessons per sitting, which would take you 23 days to complete.

I do feel if you spend the time to focus and learn the content within this class, you will have a competitive advantage over other start up lawn care business owners. Don't re-create the wheel when you don't have too. The lessons in here pull from years of discussions with thousands of lawn care business owners on the Gopher Lawn Care Business Forum.

Now take an important step in the growth of your business and start your education today.

When you are finished, please click the apply for graduation button and if you pass the course requirements, you will receive a certificate to prove you have indeed graduated. I do look forwards to your feedback on this class.

This is all brand new but ideally what it does is it submits the question and if you get it right it says answered correctly, if you get it wrong it says incorrect but when it re-freshes, it shows the answer to be the last one just by default. That isn't to say you answered it to be the last one.

I can change that around if it causes confusion.

Did you answer any questions up to that point yet or no?

You mean to tell me I did not have to go to college and get a degree in business, I could have just done it on here!! lol

well I think I have it figured out, yes i had answered the questions..
when you first click to go to the test it already has"answered correctly" but then once you answer it adds another "answered correctly" if you get it correct!!!

I have gone through the first 3 or so. Seems to be pretty helpful...good job!!!

Oh good!

What advice do you have for me to make it more user friendly?

Also if you get a chance, tell some other lawn care business owners if you can to try it out.

Thanks!

Except for just the confusion with thinking it had already answered when you first click test, it seems to be very user friendly, easy to navigate, good questions, nice stuff!....I also like the report card, thats pretty cool!

Will do!
