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

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 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 was apprehensive about taking the course online, but I was engaged the entire time and I don't feel like I missed out on anything but networking with those who would have been my classmates. Excellent job to Jim and the editors who put it together.

Elena Vega, LVN
