AFTOP & Pgm Admin course August 2017 Critiques on 08-29-2017 at 12:26 PM
Excellent Class! This is a great program that assesses several issues occurring in FTO programs.

Instructor is highly knowledgeable and teaches "new age" material in a way that is easy to understand. Perfect blend of student involvement versus lecture. Very informative and eye opening.

Lots of valuable information, hands-on participation and how to incorporate it into the job. The interactive participation helped me stay involved. Activities were very helpful with studying and retention of information.
This course was more than I expected. Covered Everything.

Excellent training class. Truly one of the best I have ever had. I took my original CTO class back in 1999. This was up to date, relative, and vital information that ALL CTO's and their Admin need to attend. Thanks so much!!!
