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.

I just completed the training course, and I want to thank you both for making this training a wonderful experience. The lecture and the videos were extremely helpful and informative. I have been in the Social Services field for over 15 years, helping people with drug and alcohol dependency, and it has improved my skills and my knowledge.

— Angela Saifi


This has been an absolutely tremendous and humbling experience. I have not done any type of schoolwork outside of the trades. I never saw myself taking copious notes, rereading paragraphs, and looking up words since I graduated high school 20 years ago. Besides learning about a field I am passionate about, the best part of this course is the self-discipline involved in completing the work.
I am so grateful for this opportunity and the support all Educational Enhancement staff has given me. I truly put my all into this, and it is a really good feeling to have completed this part. Thank you all so much.

…Overall, I feel that the way the modules were set up made a lot of sense, especially with how they built off each other. The pacing was also pretty well done, I never felt overwhelmed, and I did pretty well on the tests overall, even with the areas I struggled in.
