What students say about Fun and Fitness: Addressing Childhood Obesity:
"I simply love Care Courses [Creating Schedules and Routines and Fun and Fitness: Addressing Childhood Obesity]. I have a large family including three very young children. Care Courses provides me a way to continue my education in my own time, at my own pace. I find that I am able to absorb the information available much better and can apply it to my daily life. I find each course that I have taken extremely informative and very simple to follow along. I have applied many things that I have learned in my classroom and passed them on to other educators like myself. I rave about Care Courses and will continue to do so. Thank you for a wonderful service, it is much appreciated." - Las Vegas, Nevada
"Everything was great! The courses were informative and helped me acquire the hours I needed for my state's continued education training. The really great thing was that I received the results and certificates very, very quickly. I was pleasantly surprised that the results/hours were sent to my state's program within a couple of days. I 100% will be participating in training programs through Care Courses in the future. Thanks!" - Tulsa,Oklahoma
