Course Graduates Recommend
Tal Kosher, the project manager, was by my side every step of the way and in the end that is what helped me to succeed in my studies. They gave me the drive to invest in my studies and in the yearlong course. I had doubts about the course because I had never touched or known the profession. I don’t know if I will succeed or not but in the end my amazing lecturer, Liza, gave me hope that I will succeed and helped me believe I can do anything I put my mind to.
The fact that I chose to work in this project’s recruitment, after I did it myself and served as a commander and an instructor in the Air Force, proves to me time and time again that it really was the right thing for me.
