It was the help and support of my assigned tutor that surprised me most of all. The course was great, but having someone there are all times to fire questions at and coach you along really is precisely in value.
The course I took with BOLC helped me earn a promotion in the office I’d been with for several years. So instead of just being part of the back-office accounts team, I’m now in charge of the team! Suzanne Floyd (Office Accounts Manager)
