"I enjoyed learning about new resources to utilize in my counseling career. I liked the hands on approach of the activities which gave me the skills to apply to my profession.

Exceptional... Professional.....Supportive....only superlative suffice to do the job when speaking of Mark Danaher and Kate Cocco.     We could not have asked for better instructors than Mark and Kate.  The course was absolutely superior as a result of their expertise and guidance!   Absolutely!  Without a doubt! I recommend this course to other professionals in the guidance and career field.   As a seasoned professional, I felt I knew a great deal about career counseling, but there is so much more to learn!  This course has provided me with a clear, comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the career planning and development process.  Anyone that works in a career planning capacity should take this course!

Holly - Windham, Connecticut

The instructors were amazing!  Thank you both!  I have already recommended the course (taught by Kate and Mark) to others and will continue to do so.  The best thing about the course was the instructors and the great students in the class; everyone worked so well together.  I certainly recommend this course because other professionals will learn so very much from it.

Linda - New Hartford, Connecticut

"I have been so excited about what I am doing that I have told everyone! I have recommended the course to people in higher education, colleagues, and friends who have shown an interest in helping others with career development. Even professionals can learn something about themselves and others that will enhance their own careers. It could also help them decide to pursue that one career of their dreams."

This course has inspired me to take on new challenges in my work with helping students explore careers.

The CDF Course was very informative and enlightening.  It is well worth the time and effort. Mark did a great job and made those of us that were unsure of ourselves very comfortable.  He was very understanding and encouraging.  I feel very fortunate that we had him as our instructor.

What I have learned in this course not only benefits me as a Career Orientation teacher and Career Action Plan Coordinator; it will also be an asset to my resume for when I retire at the high school level and pursue a full time position at the college level.

Cindy - Nashville, Arkansas

The CDF class was extremely interesting to me. I was learning a lot of new techniques from the other students in the class. Techniques that not only would help me as a CDF in my school district but also as a teacher. We shared ideas and helped each other through the course. It was a great experience and I made a lot of lifetime friends. The instructor was awesome and I totally enjoyed the face-to-face meeting. Mark you are a great instructor. Thanks for being so understanding.

Stephanie - Harrisburg, Arkansas

I truly enjoyed the class and have started using the skills and tools I gained in my everyday work with adolescents at a community mental health agency. I see how important it is for the next generation to have a sense of hope about their future! This class will impact the lives of so many for the better!
