Here's what students are saying...
The online book made everything really easy and accessible.
This was my first time taking online classes, which I really enjoyed. Interacting with my classmates on the discussion board was a very good experience. The course materials were excellent. I liked the videos and charts used as examples. This certification will help me earn a promotion and apply the knowledge learned to my work.
OER - very convenient and effective resources. Instructor - accommodating, very responsive, knowledgeable, very thorough.
This was so far THE BEST online CTC class I have taken. It was very interesting to see what my classmates thought. I obtained useful information and skills I can use in the future.
The learning materials were very helpful. I enjoyed being able to re-do homework assignments as many times as needed to give me the confidence to proceed to the next lesson.
