What People are Saying About Directions’ Instructors

“I enjoyed that this was not just a ‘read from the slides’ training. There was plenty of actual teaching in the labs. I also appreciated the notes on subjects that the instructor encountered so that we had a better idea of what the real world would present.”

-Gabriel S. (July ’18)

“Instructor is patient and explains things at a good pace. He has the perfect sounding voice to listen to. I wish he also did my audio books.”

-Kurt C. (Jan ’18)

“The instructor did a great job teaching the course. He’s professional, funny, and speaks in a way that keeps the class entertained and interested in the subject matter.”

-Anonymous (March ’18)
