Risk Assessment and Treatment

"I enjoyed taking both Risk Management Principles and Practices and Risk Assessment and Treatment with Steve Scullion. I also enjoyed the classroom component - there are components of the the course that are a bit more complex, I would never have fully understood the material if it were not for class and Steve as instructor. Thanks."

"The course provided a good overall learning with enough depth to understand the information, and if need be afterwards I know where more information is available to do my job."
