"I am very much enjoying this program!  I was a tad worried about starting off with an online course but I have had an awesome experience.  The instructor did a great job with engaging everyone.  He has also been so accessible and great with communication that I haven't felt the disconnect I imagined.

It's so exciting to see how quickly and easily the material is related to my current position.  I'm already bringing new ideas to the table that are working.  My experience has been fantastic!"
