The efforts of many contribute to the ongoing success of this program. There is a balance of outside experts steeped in experience along with Becky Bartle’s wit and the keen teaching skills that leaves students eager to learn more about federal rules and regulations! Perhaps, more importantly, the students leave the course with confidence, a sense of accomplishment with profound eagerness to take the next steps.
