Graduate Testimonial

"I chose the Academy because it is clean, the atmosphere is energizing, and the educators are knowledgeable.  Every educator has no problem passing on what they know to the students. The training was great because I loved the fact that I actually got to watch things being done before doing them myself." - Jenny Noel, Graduate
