The instructors and facilitators go above and beyond any instructors and facilitators that I have ever worked with and should be commended for an excellent job well done. Intense School's training is easy to understand and learn; Boot Camp style learning is "INTENSE" and you should really have a background in or currently work with the subject matter being taught.

-Sherry Miles

The class is called "intense" for a reason...they provide all the tools necessary, but you still have to put in a lot of effort. It was totally worth the effort and I would recommend it to others.
