This course has significantly advanced my career options, enhancing my leadership and management skills. The instructors were informative, always ready to answer questions, and offer assistance. Balancing motherhood with two kids and a full-time job would have been impossible without the encouragement and support of the instructors, administrative staff, and the institution.

I liked that I was able to learn at my own pace and that live sessions were recorded and saved for students to view at a later date. This allowed me to access them on my own time and I was still able to work full-time without interruption to my work schedule.
