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 graduated with a degree in forensic psychology but decided to go into child care and my director recommended me to take the CDA course. I think it is great. Thank you.”

Shawn, Arverne, New York

What Idaho students say:
"It [Hiring the Best] was by far one of the best courses I've taken in a long time. I've been doing this for almost 30 years and while I'm required to take classes, they are the same ones over and over and this was so refreshing. Thanks so much and rest assured this is where I'll be coming for all of my trainings in the future." – Boise, Idaho
