Course Information


“I am blown away by the assistance Kevin provided during my course. Without your push I know I wouldn’t have done it. I never thought of myself being smart because all I know is warehousing / trucking driving work. Tests and textbooks freak me out big time due to my skills its always been something i hide from or play it off. I am working on my writing and spelling, going to do some more courses as soon as i can. Again, thanks so much Kevin, you are the man.”
