The material covered was very useful. My boss has even commented that she has noticed a performance increase since I have started taking classes. Great schedule, great instructors who are passionate and enjoy teaching, very nice facilities, and a surprisingly low price. I highly recommend. - Luke K., Senior Chemist and Project Management Certificate Program graduate, 2017.
