A Few Words from our Learners
“I feel more confident heading into the workforce (e.g. my communication skills). It (the course) also renewed my enjoyment of reading and writing and inspired me to look into further education… There is no loss in gaining knowledge. The instructors are very friendly, patient, and the classroom pace is comfortable. The course load is manageable and the information is up to date. Thank you.”
“The training was an eye opener for me. It gave me the opportunity to learn many things about the people around me; their culture, the law, workplace ethics, hazards and how to prevent them. I also learned a lot from the guest speakers who shared their personal experiences with us. This great experience would not have been possible if I had not participated in the training.”

“The training helped me realize I would still like to have a career in the health care field. It is going to help me get a better job, when I return to the workforce. It helped me get back in touch with the community because I am a full-time stay-at-home mom.”
