I have been enjoying the program I chose very much. I love the fact that it is self paced because there are some weeks where I don’t have enough time to dedicate to studying so I can just pickup when I do have time. I also love how the program is set up, it’s so easy to flow through the different modules. I’m definitely thinking of taking more courses, plus they are pretty affordable.
