David C Testimonial photo

"I interviewed with Amazon and the interviewer asked me how good my excel skills were. I responded that they were good. I made it to the second round interview. I decided I should take a refresher class in excel. I contacted Christine at SMLA and in a couple of days I was attending a week long class covering Excel. My teacher Zack taught me in depth about excel. I thought I knew Excel, but Zack really opened my eyes."
