What People Say About Us

I liked the hands-on job analysis, the actual job creation, and the discussion of the job's post offer employment test and description!

The On Demand course surpassed all of my expectations! I expected to lose interest but Jim Mecham was very engaging, informative, took feedback/questions from the attendees and gave detailed answers!

Adam Muheisen, PT Technician

I have practiced for 29 years and have taken a lot of courses. This On Demand course kept my interest and was not difficult to complete.

Donna Klardie

Jim was down to earth, personable, and very professional. He was able to relax the class and got everyone to participate.

Woodraw Hepler

This was my first On Demand course and I liked it. I appreciated that Jim was mindful of the fact that he was on video. It is nice to be able to pause and repeat the information as needed.

Susan Hardesty, MS, OTR
Eskenazi Health

Thank you for a very informative and practical course on pre-placement post-offer screenings! I appreciated the extensive knowledge, expertise, and ability to adjust/tailor the course to the individual needs of attendees. The format allowed those new to the subject and the "seasoned" practitioner to gain very useful and current information. I hope to attend future classes and highly recommend this course to others who may be interested in this topic.

Kathy Wolf, OTR, CRC

Exceptional as always! Jim is a wealth of knowledge and based on his presentations you know he continues to review the latest research, literature, and incorporates it into the lectures and software.

The training environment was very comfortable and was great to learn in. We received nice feedback and good food. Thank you for the salads!

Kelly Hogen, PTA
Osceola Medical Center

Since I did this course On Demand, it was slightly to my disadvantage during the on-site visit (since I wasn't actually there). However, the video footage was great and I still got all the information from the people who were there.

Tiffany Hebert
Northfield Hospital and Clinics

The information provided was beneficial, especially the part related to ADA, EEOC, Civil Right Act Issues, and case laws.

Tiffany Lang, OTD, MBA, OTRL/L
CPMC

The course was easy to follow, had lots of vital info, and taught me the dos and don'ts. Also, the On Demand format allowed me to watch from my couch! I provided great snack foods for myself!
