Working full time makes finding time difficult. Being able to complete the course in PJs is wonderful. I LOVE the On Demand course format!

Jason Geml

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.
