What makes us different? High Impact Learning.
Live, virtual learning was easy to use and very interactive - the powerpoint and handouts made it easy to follow along with the instructor. I strongly liked the course design; the hands-on activities with groups and individually kept this course much more dynamic than other virtual trainings.
Out of 30 years of different classes and instructors, this is the best class I have attended thanks to the instructor and the class materials.
I was able to apply the concepts learnt in the lessons and apply it in my assignments with valuable feedback, which helped me really grasp the topics. I liked that it is self-paced so I can take my time and digest the information while having the option to continuously review what I learned.
