WARREN, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 -- McKissock, a leader in continuing education, reveals its top-ranking land surveyor and home inspector courses, with ethics/standards and water rights coming out on top. McKissock determined these rankings by looking at its five-star rating system, which allows all class attendees to provide feedback on the courses. Read the most recent course reviews and rankings at www.mckissock.com.

McKissock is a trusted resource for the most up-to-date regulation and compliance information. An approved education provider in almost every state, McKissock offers required state-specific courses that home inspection and land surveying professionals need to keep their licenses current.

"We take student input seriously and actively use our rating system and comments sections to improve course material or make other changes," says Annie Creek, Business Development Manager at McKissock. "Customer satisfaction is a hallmark of our business and we appreciate the feedback. We are proud of how many courses rank highly and strive for five stars every time."

These results are purely based on user-generated star ratings, not taking into consideration the number of people who have taken the course or their availability.

Top home inspection courses include:

1. American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice - 4.60 stars
2. Home Inspection Safety - 4.54 stars
3. Attic Ventilation - 4.54 stars
4. Residential Cooling Systems and Heating Pump Inspections - 4.43 stars
5. Basic Principles of a Residential Electrical Inspection - 4.37 stars

Top land surveying courses include:

1. Water Rights - 4.51 stars
2. Utilities - Public and Otherwise - 4.42 stars
3. Disputes Between Adjoining Landowners - 4.41 stars
4. National Flood Insurance Program: Regulatory Basics for Land Development - 4.41 stars
5. Boundaries and Monuments - 4.40 stars

In order to stay compliant with each state board, not all courses are available in every state. However, people who would like to take courses purely for informational purposes may still do so. Feel free to contact Annie Creek at McKissock at annie.creek@mckissock.com if you have any requests or questions.

To highlight the land surveying profession in an entertaining way, McKissock also recently released a meme-inspired video called "What is a Land Surveyor?". The video takes a humorous look at what people think land surveyors do versus what they actually do on a daily basis.
