What I liked about this program is that it was self-paced and my advisor-instructor was very flexible with my schedule. Also, the review sessions with him were very helpful.My advisor-instructor was very knowledgeable and if there were any areas I was unclear about he was able to clarify so that I was able to fully understand the material.
I would recommend this program to others. I thought that the online site was very easy to use and covered all necessary topics. I found it very helpful in my everyday work responsibilities. Also, the program is self-paced which was great for me especially with my full time job and personal responsibilities.
