I feel that this course was one of the best correspondence courses I have taken. It was very informative, fun, and it made me look forward to each module.
"This program has really enhanced my knowledge. I have planned many different types of parties. I have enjoyed this program so much."
"I was in the last book of my course when good friends of mine got married. They asked me to coordinate their wedding. I gladly accepted. It turned out to be a hit. I got lots of good feedback from so many people who were amazed with the job I had done. I am so proud of myself for having the skills I learned and used. Now I have my diploma and will use it proudly!"
