Here's what students are saying...
As a full time student, working full time, on top of being a mother of two, it is very hard for me to attend face to face lecture/lab. This course was at my finger tips when I got off work and I was able to complete work quickly.
I like the flexibility that is allowed for the online course. The convenience of being able to log on to the Blackboard website at any time of the day.
I enjoyed the Distance Learning approach. The quizzes, exams and assignments taught me more than I expected. It was at the right pace and covered the right subjects.
I am happy with CTC online courses and will continue to pursue my core curriculum through CTC.
It was the right amount of coursework for the 8 week time period and assignments were to the point and truly tested our knowledge of the subject.
