BBB: (Better Business Bureau)
Search the name of any business to find out how they are rated. Search for “Colorado Learning” and notice our rating. Colorado Learning is rated “A+”, which is the highest possible rating within the BBB system. We strive to maintain our superior rating by providing excellent service to our clients and conducting business in an ethical, fair and honest fashion. In an effort to keep our costs low (thus our fees lower for you) Colorado Learning has chosen to not pay to be a member of the BBB. Businesses who make this choice are listed on the BBB web site as “Not Accredited”. Being listed as Non-Accredited is in no way a negative, it simply indicates a choice the business has made about how to spend it’s resources. We appreciate the BBB as an organization and they (and our clients) apparently have nothing but good things to say about us. Check for yourself!
