Highly Recommend for the Advanced or a Beginner

..the instructor was great. Easy to follow along. I had no experience in this field and was very nervous. Got to work at my own pace through the online courses which gave me confidence once I got to the virtual instruction. I recommend to everyone regardless if you are advanced or a beginner in the field.
