It was extremely convenient be able to do the course at my own pace when I had the time. It’s hard to commit an entire day to just sitting in a classroom.

Cory L.

User friendly. The course material was easy to understand and follow. Animations and review questions were great/helpful. Test covered all material. Thanks.
