This program was the start of a rewarding career. I made life-long friendships in class and with the instructors. I still use lessons and skills that I learned in 2008/09 today in 2016.

This program really opens up your eyes to the extent of the industry. Going in, I had a lot of experience, but I didn’t know how far I could go and all the opportunities that exist.
