What people say about us

  • Instructor Kelli Thompson is one of the most professional instructors that I have ever had. Her effective teaching skills and knowledge of the job are extraordinary. Her excitement about trade and use of creative scenarios gets the students really involved in learning. She takes subject matter that could be very dry, and she transforms it into something dynamic and interesting. I think the combination of having someone with such a strong background in teaching - combined with a strong background as an Import Specialist - is very effective.

  • I felt that our full-time instruction was beyond beneficial. The Ms. Thompson was prepared and knowledgeable in all aspects they were teaching. It was great to see so much enthusiasm and understanding from our instructor.

  • Ms Thompson is an amazing instructor! She is high energy and uses repetition and examples in a way that helps me to learn. She is a great coordinator and very organized!
