The rush to get out begins

The training companies promised riches, and that's what they got.

Having leveraged Government legislation to exaggerate the urgency and "shortage" of Domestic Energy Assessors and Home Inspectors to the unsuspecting aspirant public, it seems they're at it again.

GlobalBX, a website listing businesses for sale, are punting a DEA training company for £115,000.

Details are short, no doubt because over-exaggerating the particulars of a business sale in print is prone to punitive litigation - well let's face it, if you've got £115,000 to splash on any property-related company in these economic climes, you're far more likely to have legal representation, aren't you.

Proven formula

I like this line given as the reason for selling: "Having 'proven the formula' of this business the current owners wish to pursue other business interests."

I bet they do!

...and so the marketing BS continues unabated.

Here's another ad on Daltons which reveals that training is carried out on "the business’s own facilities close to one of the major commercial centres in Surrey".

And what's this, another for £8 million!

A rumour from a reliable source last week told me the training company DEAs and HIs love to hate are apparently pimping their training machine for around £8 million.

With the diminishing presence of investment companies these days, maybe they're now hoping to be nationalised.
