Student Experiences

Techniques were well demonstrated, expectations were clear, and the way in which the course flowed was really clear, logical, and allowed for me to build my skills and understanding.

~ J. Lipkowitz- PRO 1

Some of the best instructors I have ever learned from. All of them were very knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable and created a great learning environment.

~A. Irvin- PRO 2

It was great having two professional instructors with different strengths that complimented each other quite well.  I came away feeling that we truly maximized our potential for learning and honing skills over the 5 days of the course.
