“Having many years of experience in the industry, I was somewhat hesitate to take the course because I felt that I knew it all. However, after getting started, I actually went through the materials twice as it was a great refresher course for many things I had forgotten over the years. Nice job in developing a curriculum that is beneficial to everyone, including those who feel they know it all.” - Terry Purcell, Maritz Travel Company
