Choosing an educator
Click on name to visit the website or call to learn more about that educator's class. It's a good idea to research several options. Price is only one factor to consider; another is service, instructor interaction, including when staff will be available to answer your questions. Consider your individual learning style and the degree of instructor interaction that will best suit your needs.
Live classes typically offer a greater degree of instructor interaction compared to the self-study options.
Self-study by mail is best suited for those who simply need the study manual and minimal instruction.
Self-study online provides additional instruction through online courses.
