17 leading Korean designers, builders and material distributor have participated and awarded with certificate of completion from Super E Office.  Regardless of the high cost of participation (over CAD $5,000 dollars for tuition fee, accommodation, meals and flights), the exit survey shows that they were highly satisfied with this intensive training program focusing on Super E and every penny they spent was worthwhile.
