Before I attended the two day seminar I didn't know too much about what I was allowed to do as an newly assigned HR Manager. After the seminar I feel confident enough to return to work with the knowledge I need to be a great asset to my company. I truly appreciate the lessons I've learned while at the seminar and it is all thanks to the WONDERFUL instructor we had!!! AMA is full of energetic and positive people, they all made me feel at home. Great experience, great school, I would highly recommend!

I learned so much in these four sessions. The instructor was excellent and engaging. She provided real examples that were helpful to better understand how to really put the training to use in my new job. The facilitator was organized, clear and concise in her directions, and really on it every single session. Overall two thumbs up!
