Hello I started this program after i figured out what i wanted to do with my life. It only took me 27 years to figure out :). I am happily married and mother of 3 ages 3, 2, and 2 months (yep we wasted no time LOL)and I plan on staying home with them and starting a business from home. I was getting up with the baby in the early AM then reading, taking notes and in the afternoon when the other two were sleeping watching the recorded videos. I finished this process in about 3 weeks, but it took another 3 weeks of reading notes, taking the prac. tests and re watching some of the videos to feel comfortable enough to take the exam. I was able to get certified without putting a financial strain on my already strained situation. Thank you ACTION Holly Weilnau CPT
