I cannot say enough about the good things the program at EKU offers. One can get as little, or as much, as they want from the program. It is entirely up to the individual. The faculty is there to assist the students in obtaining the knowledge they need to ensure they perform their jobs in the best, and most reliable, manner possible.”

What Our Faculty Is Saying

For students, the most rewarding aspect is the opportunity to learn not only from instructors who are seasoned professionals, but also from their fellow students on the Discussion Board. They have an opportunity to gain insight into areas of the profession that they would not have ordinarily considered. The collective experience of instructors and students sets the stage for a rich learning environment.”
