Thank you so much for the opportunity to be able to complete these courses on my time – some days I am able to dedicate 8-10 hours and some days I cannot log on at all. Not having to present to a “scheduled class” on a particular day at a set time makes it so much more convenient to meet the necessary requirements and I cannot thank you enough for creating this program and these courses
I wanted just to take a second and say thank you. Thank you for taking the time to do this, I think you are helping a lot of people understand the role. I’ll be transitioning into my new CASAC role in the next couple of months, thanks to Educational Enhancement CASAC Online.
I recently finished OASAS CASAC Section 4 with Educational Enhancement CASAC online. The distance learning classes are wonderfully written and easy to understand, and you can feel the passion for helping others succeed put into this work. When I asked questions about the information, Johnny was quick to reply and help me out. The trainings were set up to work at my speed -between work and school. The information went above and beyond and was taught in a way that sticks in your mind. Thank you.
I will come back for renewal hours once I’m a CASAC.
I found the training to be not only interesting but informative and helpful. I love the recovery field; therefore, I enjoy learning and did well with the training. As a visual learner, I respond well to visual teaching; therefore, the pre-recorded videos and added resources benefited me. I could download the workbooks and follow along with the videos while taking notes. I also liked repeating the questions in the final exam because the repetitive question from previous tests helped me learn.
Educational Enhancement Is a great CASAC training program. I participated for my initial trainings – passed my CASAC exam in the first go around. I have been using them for my re-credential if for over 10 years. The staff is supportive and informed about the topics. I rate them 5 stars overall and have referred students over the years.
