Student Reviews

“My favorite part of the course was the live interaction piece following the completion of the self-study. It was an opportunity to ask questions and clarify information that I was uncertain about. Matt also took the information from the statutes and applied it to real-life situations, which made the live interaction piece informative and ‘real.’”

— Ciara Suarez, RMHCI, Manatee Co, FL


“Great Course, I wanted to do the live version but was unable to because of scheduling. This was next best compared to other competitors offering the course.”

— Elizabeth Jordan, RMHCI, Florida


“The phone conference was my favorite part. Beforehand I was nervous about it but I need not have been. Matt McMillan was wonderful as he presented himself as a mentor who fosters understanding with a coaching mentality. To someone like me, who is easily intimidated, it was reassuring and confidence building. I learned some very helpful things and sure did appreciate it!”

— Molly Baer, Registered Intern, Palm Beach, FL
