I thought the course was great and has given me more insight into how to present information, however, I feel for the amount of time spent, we should be able to receive CEU hours for it, but the certificate does not indicate any type of hours. It is from the Texas Department of State Health, so I would assume we could get some hours for our attendance for 3 days.- Thank you, Wanda House

I entered this course expecting to develop my skills but was blown away by how much I learned about both myself and presentations. The course material was well thought out and put together in a way that made learning easy, and Stephanie and Anita were excellent faciliatators. Not only did they work well together, but they had a mastery of the topic and insightful, helpful critiques. All in all, one of the best trainings I have ever attended. Highly recommended for anyone who wants good, solid training in the subject.

I enjoyed the presentation skills training because the facilitators worked very well together and that made it flow very well. The content and activities were right on and I enjoyed the communication skills that I learned in this process. Finally the students were all very nice and respectful of each other. Thank you-
