Don’t take our word for it – here’s what former students say:
Mr. Brown was a great instructor! He answered all my questions quickly and clearly. The course content was very relevant and helpful for becoming a great Activity Director.
It was such a pleasure having Mr Brown as an instructor. At first I wasn’t too sure about getting started due to me becoming overwhelmed easily. However, the class was so organized and structured I was able to successfully complete the course with minimum stress. Also Mr Brown answered all questions in a timely manner via email. I was very pleased.
I highly recommend this course. The organization of the course was so helpful and easy to follow. I’m a busy professional and felt at ease completing the objectives on time.
