What People Say About Us

The On Demand course was extremely informative and I'm so glad I took it this way because I clicked the back button about 100 times so I could take accurate notes. I am so pleased with the course, the content, and materials. This was great and I'm very thankful.

Jim Mecham had an awesome personality, explained topics clearly, and answered all questions positively!

Jessica Haaf, DPT

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.

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.

Woodraw Hepler

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.

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.
