    Why isnt this training offered outside of the regular 8-4 time schedule. there are people who have full time jobs who are very interested in changing their career paths but are unable to attend these training because the college insists on only having it during 8-4. Some will say well take leave, but getting leave is not always that easy. Especially when it needs to be timed properly with these last minute announcements.

    Well-loved. Like or Dislike: Thumb up 11 Thumb down 0
