What People Are Saying 

"I love the course [Train the Practitioner]! It's so much more than I was expecting. It's so simple/clear yet immediately applicable and functional! I was only really taking the class for credits w a mild interest. I am so happy. Thank you! ...oh and technologically speaking- the online course is so easy to follow and use. Even I did it! ...Additionally if you ever want anyone in doubt to call me as a reference, that's good too! You should know, I'm really not easily impressed."
