Alumni Review: "Enlightening"
This is one of the most enlightening experiences that I've had in quite a while. I never dreamed that I would be learning a new skill at this stage of my life path and was initially skeptical about trying the program. Within the first 30 days I found myself drawn to the curriculum, atmosphere, and overall experience. The instructors are extremely helpful and responded to my questions right away. The community of colleagues provide great tips as well. I am very happy to be a student and to be a part of such a thriving community.
