Here's what students are saying...
I have some days that I work 15/16 hours, and then have to come home and take care of two kids. The self-paced, online courses make things so much easier. The instructor made a course plan to show how much homework should be completed every week in order to stay on track.
I am able to do the online course while being in a deployed environment.
The course was easy to navigate through and the professor was very informative.
The online material was the best. It offered the chance to practice the material until you understood how and what to do.
I liked the online learning option. Due to my work schedule I would not be able to attend face-to-face classes.
