"This class is an incredible investment that can be applied immediately and cannot be passed up," says Michelle Fanter of Mc-Graw-Hill, Dubuque. "For us to be able to improve how we start projects is key to improving how they end up. I was able to take these skills and instantly start to apply them to current projects. I intend to come back to learn more."
