Direct Care Basics student testimony: "The Direct Care Basics class was indeed one of the most amazing classes I have challenged myself with. The instructors were simply fantastic! The way they presented themselves, the way they communicated with each one of us, the way they gave us a chance to ask any questions we had and the way they demonstrated every single thing to us. Every task they took us through was so great. I have learned a great deal and would truly take this class all over again!" Thank You, S. Watson
