Yes, I have taken a few courses online and the instructors use ample time to explain things to you if you don not understand. I took some hard classes online and managed passing all my online class with an A. You can get in tough with them anytime you need too. And they are always there to answer them. I loved all my instructors, on line and on campus!

It was challenging this semester due to the coronavirus, but my experience overall was good. I was used to learning through in-class instruction & taking online tests, so the last couple months not having that classroom instruction have been challenging to say the least. I would recommend this school to anyone needing to take their basics or learn a trade.
It’s a great school & very close to home. It was challenging to work from home & finish my classes online due to the coronavirus, but I did it!
