The Blended Learning Program was so convenient. I travel a lot and I could do a lot of the program just while waiting at the airport or flying. And I loved the live weekends in Newport Beach!Julie C.
I can't believe how much I learned. I thought I knew a lot about sex, but this program really made me think about so much about human sexuality I never even considered.Michael L.
Thank you for creating this program. Instead of going around from conference to conference I was able to fulfill all of my AASECT requirements in one program.Wendy G.
