I would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking for an easy to use platform with a ton of useful material - well worth the money and the support has been great!
This was a great option for me - killer deal and exactly what I needed to get my current job. Interface was easy to use and I got my digital certificate immediately which was nice.
The thing I loved most about this couse were the visuals - there is a lot of reading and I really appreciated the examples of lesson plans, worksheets, etc, to help reinforce everything.
