    My instructor is obviously a Pro at what she does. I wish I had someone around like her to mentor me when I was younger. Some of the technical aspects of the course are a little challenging, but the concepts for doing what is being taught is becoming clear to me. I hope this will make all the difference as I delve into the coursework even more.

    My trainer was very engaging and knowledgeable. I liked her way of teaching - sharing notes and providing hands-on practicals within the sessions.
