The instructors and all the other staff are extremely helpful and supportive, so although you’re working on your own, it never feels like you are alone! Completing my education by distance was extremely beneficial because I could continue to work almost full time, AND I didn’t have to leave my friends and family to go to school. Overall, a wonderful experience from start to finish and I’m so proud of my new diploma! CD-ED is the way to go!
