Student Testimonials

Rachel Collard, UTA CEP Grad

I would recommend taking the course. It was exactly what I expected it to be and I’m glad that it met by expectations. The only advice I could provide to someone that wants to take the course is just a recommendation to attend a live class along with the online component. Networking opportunities are endless when you take a live class and happen naturally. View All Testimonials →
