"This is my first time returning to school in a long time. [My instructor] encouraged me when I felt like I was too old for the class and not knowledgeable enough to pursue my dream. He made me feel like I could do anything."

"I feel very comfortable using the programs we learned. I especially appreciated the way assignments built on themselves, so that we revisited skills learned in previous classes. I feel confident that I will retain everything because of that."
