“I have spent a lot of money on continuing my education and I must admit LANDU Week Plus was the most well spent money yet. Not only were the Instructors the best in the business, so were the other students. It was a great week and a wealth of information. I would suggest it to anyone that plans to be in the land business for the long run.”

Mark Skillman, ALC

“I had a wonderful time networking with fellow land practitioners from around the country and made fast friends with many of them as we discovered the commonality we all share in our unique industry.   Moreover, my intellect was definitely challenged as I worked through the course material and gleaned new information to increase my knowledge base, level of proficiency and, hopefully, effectiveness as a land professional. ”
