“The networking opportunities at all three of the Executive Program classes were of as much value as the class material itself.” Says Frank Rosenlieb, HS&E Manager, KVS Transportation Inc. “The attendees were readily willing to discuss experiences regarding the world of executive management and openly shared problem solutions that worked as well as avenues that resulted in less than satisfactory results.”

“I believe these are courses that can make a difference in a professional’s career and I’m pleased, proud, and fortunate to be a part of that process.” Skipper Kendrick, CSP, President, Kendrick Global Enterprises LLC.
