Comments from a Recent Graduate
"Hi David and Christa! I LOVED the course and have told everyone about it. I hope you get more people interested in the course. I had a lot of fun and I surprised myself with my abilities!!!
I hope I do not have to ever use them, but it is good to know I am not helpless. Take Care, I plan on taking a refresher course each year.
