I started your online 60-Hour program on September 1st and passed both parts of the State exam on my first try.  Thank you very much.  The course was great.  It was a tough test.  I don’t think I would have passed without your program.  You gave me everything I needed.  Your organization package walked me through every step.  I will be taking all of my continued education through you.
