"This was an excellent course! The content was very clear and the format was easy to use. The videos, practice exercises and worksheets combined to make the online learning experience much like an in-person, hands-on class.
The material is consistent with the current research and practice in the science of human behavior. I strongly recommend this training to anyone in a position to teach others or help them to develop beneficial habits!"
