I really liked the short lecture format – it allowed me to attend lectures when I had a few minutes here and there. I thought the content was really good and the assignments helped me apply what I was learning. The toolkit provided to drive change is something I can use over and over again going forward. The flexibility of the program allowed me to adjust based on my work schedule.
