What Utah students say:

"About a year ago I thought I had already taken my courses, but found out during an inspection I had taken the wrong ones. I had 30 days to complete the three courses and while they were offered through the State, they were not available during the time period allotted. I was told about Care Courses by my licensor and within two weeks I had completed what I needed with time to spare. I called many times with questions and everyone was so helpful. I will certainly use Care Courses again and will recommend you to everyone. I thank you so much." - West Valley City, Utah

As soon as I get this current course done I'm getting two more courses to get enough CEUs for my Career Ladder 7. I'm very excited, since I've already picked what I want to do next, and for the next course after that. :-)" - Layton, Utah
