I loved this training!
Tamra is so knowledgeable and presents the material so well. I love how she breaks it down, and then reviews it again and again to make sure it really sinks in. Her consultants are supportive and encouraging and provide excellent feedback and helpful suggestions during practicum. I can’t say enough good things about the training and I can’t wait to do advanced trainings and certification with this group!
