For me, this option was quick, efficient and easy. It’s not often easy for me to find and schedule a continuing education class in my area. This means that I have to wait for one to be scheduled, then hope it’s not on a day that I’m working. This option allows me to schedule my continuing education whenever I have time. The course is very well set up, and covers the material thoroughly both in technical terms, and with easy to understand explanations.
