Shawn"I am having a ball doing these courses. So much of it is very interesting and also touches a lot on what I learned in college. I decided to go into child care and my director recommended me to take the CDA course. I think it is great."

What Alabama students say: 

 

"Your courses help me to remember and utilize the basics but they also help put things in perspective. This course has been good because I am a little bit on the disorganized side. The sample schedules are going to help me create a great schedule." - Opelika, Alabama
