Student Reviews

“Excellent Course. I didn’t think I’d like a course in laws and rules, but I actually enjoyed it and learned a lot more than I thought I would.”

— Eileen O’Connell, LCSW, Pinellas Co, FL


“This was a very effective course and extremely TIMELY. Legal jargon is often difficult for lay people. This was presented with that in mind. As counselors, we MUST know these laws and the way with which this course is set up made this less tedious.”

— Marcia Lao, Licensed Professional Counselor, Highlands, FL


“I believe the course was extremely informative with a tremendous amount of information. My favorite part was the way things were broken down so simplistic it was easy to learn and understand.”

— Nathalie Viau, Registered mental health counselor intern, Orange County, FL
